Product Summary

When you're ready to get serious about your rifle, pick up a Colt Competition. First among the many premium features on the Colt Expert CRE-18 is an 18" match-grade, air-gauged, polished 416 stainless-steel custom barrel. It has a gas-operated, original direct-impingement system, a Twin-Port muzzle brake, a Magpul 4-position adjustable stock, a modular vented float-tube handguard, a Hogue rubber finger groove grip, and an enlarged Magpul trigger guard. You also can't ignore the Colt Competition charging handle with extended tactical latch, a matched bolt & bolt carrier with an H-buffer, and a forged and precision-fitted 7075-alloy upper and lower receivers. A 13-Slot Picatinny rail on the upper receiver allows for optics mounting.

Each Colt Competition rifle is test fired for accuracy and guaranteed to fire 3-shots in 1" or less at 100 yards (with specified factory ammo). A signed, serial numbered, and dated test target is included with each rifle. A 1-year warranty comes standard.
