Colt Comp SS in .38 Super
« on: January 23, 2017, 02:35:01 PM »
Yes this is the time of year that I always get the itch to buy a new handgun and belive me I got it really bad!! Been thinking of the New Colt Comp SS in .38 Super. Whats your thoughts on the Super? and the Colt Comp SS ? I had the Blue version in my hand on Friday and didn't think to highly of the finish Colt puts on the Blue version  ::) They had a SS one there in 9mm which I liked much better :) but I already have two 9mm one S&W 39 and a S&W Shield, the 39 is scary accurate so I don't need another 9mm as that one will out shoot most 9s I have shot.
I guess maybe being that the 38 Super is unique and the fact that you don't see one every day, kind of why I like my 10mm so much.
So anyone out there have anything good to say about the .38 and the Colt Comp. Also I do reload so I will be rolling my own ammo.

Sorry I didn't see this post before....

As to the .38 is my favorite semi-auto pistol round. Have been carrying one daily since 1980. Very easy to load for, extremely accurate and easy to shoot. Can be loaded with bullets from 90 to 160+ grains in .355, .356 or .357 diameter.  As long as the nose profile will feed you can use it in a Super case.

I own a bunch of Colts in .38 Super but not the new Competition Model. One of the guys over on the SingleAction Forums just ordered one yesterday.  From what people have said on the 1911 Forums they are well made, reliable and accurate...

I have a 38 super barrel for my Witness Match and I love it.  The 38 super and 10mm are both great cartridges for their respective calibers.

Both support bullets from about 75% below typical to about 125% above typical for their caliber.

Both have the case capacity needed to push high SD bullets to decent velocities.

I don't know much about the Colt Comp, but you can't go wrong with a 38 super.
