Colt is a well-known brand name for firearms, and they have earned it. Their name stands for quality, craftsmanship, durability, and dependability, and their guns live up to their reputation. Colt weapons are suitable for shooting but also highly valued by collectors – these are some words associated with Colt. Whether you are a shooter or a collector, this gem will not disappoint.
Some of the well-known features are the two-tone, half-checkered, and half-smooth rosewood grips with the Colt-embossed logo. The lesser-known features include an upswept, beavertail grip safety and palm swell, and a single-safety side lock for safe handling and ease of use. The receiver, slide, and barrel are all forged in solid steel, for durability that can’t be beat.
The Combat Elite comes with the Novak low sight, which is one of the best in the industry. The rear sight does not trap shadows, offering crisp and clear sight picture. The front sight is a bold post with accuracy dots that are easy to frame on target. In addition, it features an upgraded hammer and front and rear slide serrations. The Colt Combat Elite usually goes for around $1,000.
