Nice to see some fellow Colt/Umarex folks on here. For the OP, here's a picture of the different models...

You can order the Gold Cup sights if you want them. I ordered some stuff through Umarex and it was a pleasant experience if you want to go that route.. Part #'s below

Front sight, Gold Cup, assembly: 517.702.01
Rear sight, Gold Cup, assembly: 517.702.02

I have a Colt Ace, post WWII. Great to shoot a 1911 with cheap ammo. I think Blue Book is around a grand, and pre WWII at about $3500.

What are your thoughts on a desert eagle 44?!

Good or junk?

It's just me, but I don't like their looks or the reason for .44 mag semi auto. My 4" 629 is about 35yrs old and magna ported. I love it. Just a matter of taste. I use Cabela's Gun Library to get some idea of value. They are high. Gun Broker too.

In a NY minute!

I've got both, the GSG and the Colt Gold Cup.

They both are heads above the Browning I shot.

The Colt is worth the up-charge over the GSG.

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!
