In the world of firearms few companies can compete with the emotional connection that Colt offers to shooters throughout the USA. With Colt Firearms you have a connection to the nostalgic history that help form the USA with Sam Colts Single Actions, to the collaboration with John Browning to create the world famous 1911. Even in todays firearm industry moving towards lighter polymer guns, Colt Firearms are still being used by our Military, Law Enforcement, and Lawful Civilians to protect themselves, their loved ones, and those in their charge. When only the best will do one name should come to the top of your list - Colt - a true American Legacy.
