For more than two hundred years, Colt has been a premier arms maker, providing handguns to military, law enforcement, and civilians.
Over the years, Colt has improved upon their processes, and today relies on a perfect balance of modern technology and professional craftsmanship to create some of the most reliable pistols and revolvers.
From classic cowboy revolvers to a slew of sleek and modern 1911s, Colt makes a handgun for every taste and purpose.
Current manufacturing includes about a dozen different type of pistols in more than 60 different variants and four lines of revolvers offered in 15 different models.
While Colt produces some of the most lasting and iconic handguns available, there are a few that stand out above the rest. The most popular Colt revolvers include the classic Single Action Army, Cobra, and Python, all of which are available in several variants. The best-selling Colt pistols include the Classic 1911, the Government, the Competition series, and the carry-friendly Defender.
Known as "The Gun That Won the West," the Single Action Army was made in more than 30 calibers over the years. It served as the standard revolver for the U.S. military from 1873 to 1892 and was the preferred sidearm of General George Patton throughout his career.
Originally produced from 1950 to 1981, the Colt Cobra made a comeback in 2017. The Cobra can vary significantly from model to model. The earlier editions of this six-shot, double-action revolver have a frame made of aluminum, while the newer models have a steel frame.
Described by some as the finest production revolver ever made, the Colt Python delivers six rounds of 357 Mag and is crafted with a unique look and the ultimate in reliability. The Python has made an appearance in countless movies and television shows over the last five decades and is the weapon of choice for the Walking Dead's cop turned zombie killer, Rick Grimes.
While Colt offers a slew of 1911-style pistols, the Classic 1911 is a basic model that pays tribute to the Government models of yesteryear. It is made with a National Match barrel, staked on front sights, and a spurred hammer. Made with a pure and simple design, this revolver is available in 45 ACP and 38 Super with a stainless or blued finish and classic 1911 grips.
Complete your gun collection with a Colt Government. Made from forged American steel, with a National Match barrel, double-diamond checkered grips, and the company's famous trigger, this pistol delivers indisputable style in 45 ACP or 38 Super.
The Colt Competition is a semi-automatic pistol that's enhanced for greater accuracy and control and ready for battle against the timer. Available in several variants, this handgun boasts a National Match barrel, a 3-hole aluminum trigger, Novak sights, and a beavertail grip safety with raised memory bump. A dual recoil spring system helps to reduce felt recoil, while the Series 70 Firing System ensures a clean, crisp trigger pull.
For those who desire a more concealable option, the Colt Defender series is a favorite. It offers the power and performance of a 1911 in a smaller, more compact package that's ready for everyday carry. Chambered for 9mm or 45 ACP, it is an accurate and reliable workhorse and an excellent choice for concealed carry.
