Default Information on Colt

I recently came across to articles that may make Canebrake a little happier today.

First-
Colt is coming out with a new Gold Cup National Match:
Colt's Manufacturing Introduces Gold Cup National Match | Down Range TV

Quote:
WEST HARTFORD, Conn. – Colt’s Manufacturing Company LLC, celebrating its 175th anniversary this year, is proud to announce the new Colt® Gold Cup® National Match®; currently shipping to distributors across the United States. This match-grade target pistol is the newest to come from Colt’s timeless Gold Cup Series of competition firearms. With Colt’s inherent use of high quality materials, superior manufacturing processes and storied pistol expertise, the Gold Cup National Match is sure to provide top shot performance.

“Beginning in the 1930s, Colt’s National Match pistols have set the standard by which all target pistols are judged,” said Joyce Rubino, Vice President of Marketing, Colt’s Manufacturing Company, “Because this line of guns is designed with match shooters in mind, the Colt Gold Cup National Match gives anyone the potential to make quality shots.”

The Gold Cup National Match’s fully adjustable Bo-Mar style rear sight combined with the high profile, target front sight, gives shooters confidence in shot placement. Adding to the viability of this single-action pistol as a competitive firearm, is the beveled magazine well, which allows for speed and ease during reloads.

Two standout features of the new Colt Gold Cup National Match are the match-grade trigger and barrel. The wide, three-hole aluminum trigger is factory tuned for a crisp break each time. The National Match barrel is CNC machined from forged stainless steel, measures five inches and is chambered for .45 ACP ammunition.

Also CNC machined are the receiver and round-top slide, both made from forged carbon steel with a blued finish. The wrap-around, rubber target stock features nickel medallions that showcase the rampant Colt. Overall, the gun measures 8.5 inches and weighs 2.5 pounds.

“We are excited to make the Gold Cup National Match available to shooters as the newest edition to Colt’s legacy Gold Cup Series of target pistols,” said Rubino.
Second- I, along with Canebrake, live in the state of Florida. Colt is planning on opening a new plant in Kissimmee, Fl. It will hire 63 people at around 45k. I would definately quite the prison to work there if I had any machining experience.

It does say that it is actually carbon steel and is blue, I just wished they would specify if it is Royal Blue. That would make it very appealing.

Just when I thought I had bought my last Colt 1911, they go and pull me back in!

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!

UPDATE:

Series 80

The National Match barrel is CNC machined from forged stainless steel, also CNC machined are the receiver and round-top slide, both made from forged carbon steel with a blued finish.

I want to sleep with it. Y'all know you feel the same way, I'm just the only one willing to admit it.
