    Colt Gold Cup .45 Series '70 N.M.

    Stopped in to my LGS today and there under glass was the Colt Gold Cup I've been looking for in the last few weeks.
    It's a Series '70 and in nice condition, no holster wear, just some signs of being fired some, probably someones range gun.

    It came with two satin nickel magazines and had aftermarket laminated wood grips that I didn't like so I put these Rosewood grips on it from my woodpile, until I can find something more suitable. Colt serial number lookup says it was built in 1980.
    I'd been surfing the web at all the usual suspect sites and couldn't find a nice Gold Cup at a fair price. Sometimes patience pays off, or as I sometimes say I'd rater be lucky than good....

    Great find, at the rate you get lucky buying nice guns you may need a walk in vault.

    I love the looks of a quality 1911, I just don't care to shoot them that much. Another great local find sir, a tip of the hat to you!

    Very Nice. I like it. The trigger is rather unique. Was that a factory offering or is it aftermarket?

    Great gun! I like the rosewood grips on it - but I also understand that a person wants what feels and looks right for him/her SELF!

    Yes sir jonesy that steel trigger with the over travel stop screw is one of the signature attributes of the Gold Cup, along with the flat top slide and adjustable sights.

    I tried to use the "Rate this Thread" button and was going to give this thread a 4 Star, ****, rating.
    But, it does not work for my PC.
