The world is most influenced by those who dare to dream. In the firearms industry, there are few dreamers who can compete with the work of Samuel Colt. His famous revolver design was one of the most significant developments in the history of handguns, giving people of that time a chance to effectively get away from the single shot pistol and embrace something that would actually work. Over time, Colt firearms developed to become a powerhouse in the industry and continues to be one of the most iconic names in guns today.

Though it has undergone some organizational changes over the years, Colt has been producing firearms since 1835, making it one of the oldest gun manufacturers in the United States. The Colt company was officially founded in 1855 and headquartered in Hartford, Connecticut. After Samuel Colt received various patents for his innovative new revolver design, people immediately started going to his company to fill their firearm needs. This is because his new revolvers were not only practical, but they were also much more reliable than previous design attempts.
Most recently, Colt has released a few modifications to their most well-known pistols, offering new configurations of the 1911 to provide for the needs of modern shooters. The Rail Gun series is one to receive three new additions to the family, including a Lightweight Commander, Combat Commander, and Government Model option. Naturally, these weapons all include an accessory rail on the weapon and include stylistic improvements to allow for superior ballistic performance.
The XSE series also seems some additions in the latest releases, offering a 9mm model for shooters to try out. These can come in either the Lightweight Commander or Stainless Government model configurations. The 1991 also gets a new 9mm option in the new 01992 Model from Colt, which features largely the same performance but in a smaller caliber. Finally, the Gold Cup National Match comes into the mix with a classic 1911 designed around the .45 ACP and featuring a National Match barrel for added accuracy.
Though Colt was originally recognized for its innovative revolver design, the most iconic design for modern shooters would have to be the Colt 1911. From 1911 until 1986, this iconic 45 caliber pistol served as the standard issue weapon for the US Military, giving them a platform that was much more reliable and powerful than other pistols at the time. Some specialized US military units still utilize the 1911 as their standard pistol, though with some modern improvements. Though you might not find these original 1911 pistols at Omaha Outdoors, you can get some of those modern examples that serve as an iconic reminder of the pistol's success.
Colt manufactures a wide variety of different pistols to fit each individual shooter. The 1911 Rail Gun is one of the more popular models for modern shooters, offering an integrated accessory rail to ensure easy accessory attachment. Another popular modern configuration is the 1991 series, which Colt offers as a direct decedent of the 1911 platform. For those who want a concealed carry option, the Colt Defender is a popular choice, allowing for a 3" barrel configuration for easy concealment.
If you want a classic performer, you might be more interested in checking out the Gold Cup series, which earned a reputation for its use in shooting competitions. It offers a checkered walnut stock and gold medallion grip to show off its unique performance. The Special Combat Government Model is another great option to consider, and it includes a fully adjustable Bomar style rear sight and lowered flared ejection port for performance. Also, the Series 70 still holds a special place in many hearts for its use during the Vietnam War.

Colt manufacturers a variety of AR style rifles and carbine as well, giving shooters the performance they need. The AR15 A4 is one of the basic models to consider, allowing for a 5.56 NATO shooter that will keep up with the most extreme performance standards. The LE6940 and LE6920 are two of the other great options to consider, both offering a 16.1" barrel that will provide for exceptional accuracy at the range or in the field.
