What is the Colt font?
Like a muscle car from decades ago, Colt aims to balance unbridled power and finesse. The wide letterforms arose out of a love for type found on motor vehicles made in the sixties. As the typeface took shape, the characters utilized the Clarendon style with attention to its ball terminals to anchor the design. The result yields a new take on the extended slab-serif genre in a wide array of weights.
Many text or headline typefaces are created to conserve space in order to fit more characters on a line. Colt stands on the opposite side of the spectrum with generously wide letterforms. Though horizontal space is thrown out the window, this family lends itself to vertically tight spaces while retaining legibility. More…
Colt can work well as the primary typeface in a composition with a bent towards logotype. Or, it can play a supporting role in the design. A softer companion was also created, aptly titled Colt Soft.

You know the fonts on this site are premium, right? Colt is not a free font.
If you want to use Colt then I suggest just paying for it and downloading Colt HERE. You can find some other great options here on GFONTS.com as well that will save you time looking around all over the web.
It is always best to pay for a premium font rather than trying to find an illegal download. The benefits of paying for Colt are that you get the license, and if you're caught using it illegally there could be some potential legal implications with the publisher of this particular typeface.
Furthermore, when searching "free downloads" on Google, most websites will say they have them but these types of offers usually come at a cost - either something like high-pressure sales tactics or getting tricked into downloading malware onto your computer by malicious third parties who want access to all your personal information!
It's just too risky going about finding free fonts online.
