Default Colt

I just had my favorite gun store order a new colt gold cup national match for me. I put $400 down and can't wait till it comes in. He wasn't sure on delivery date and said it could be 1 week to even a month.

I guess I have to get used to everyday feeling like a week while I'm waiting for this gun. The guy told me it could take up to a month.

A local shop here has a new blue Gold Cup in stock and I took a peak at it to see how it compared to my (beloved) series 70 GCNM, the first gun I started shooting as a teen in a Police Explorers group and the first gun I bought later on.

I was really impressed with the new one, and almost took it home with me. I was really glad to see Colt turning out such a nice product, and the price even seemed really reasonable.

Your really going to like yours. Well worth the wait.

The one I had ordered is stainless and my total was, atleast in my opinion, reasonable at $909.99 out the door.

Good price. Colts in my area ar usually tagged at MSRP & higher, plus the sales tax! But, when I check Colt's website for dealers, none are listed in my area, so I guess my LGS's are not buying at the best price.
