My new Colt Gold Cup
 
Hi again guys,
it has been 2 days now that i have in my possesion this beautiful gun.Today i took it to the range and fired 50 rounds through it.
A few things did grab my attention,firstly the accuracy.
Without a doubt this gun is accurate,found it very easy to handle and a pleasure to shoot.
Secondly,i did have some incidents where the slide would not fully lock out and a FTF,i had cleaned and lubed the gun last night however i am thinking as to whether i applied enough lube or not.(also would like to add that i wasn't using the most expensive ammo either)
All in all at this present time with the minimum amount of shooting i have done with it i am very pleased.
I believe there may be a breaking in period of several hundred rounds so i am waiting for that to conclude before i can futher comment on reliability.
P.S She is beautiful :D

A Gold Cup is a pretty tight tolerance gun and will probably need a few hundred rounds thru it before it settles in. Also, 1911s are REALLY mag sensitive and I rarely use the mags that come with the gun. Get some quality after market mags like Wilsons or Tripps...

I think the 1911 is one of, if not the, most magazine sensitive guns made. Few 1911 builders ship there guns with magazines that I would consider acceptable for duty/defense use. The typical factory 1911 mag is best just used for range duty or round storage. Wilson, Tripp, McCormick "Power Plus", and Nighthawk are the brands that I would invest in. If you can spend a thousand plus on a gun,,,,,, you can spend another hundred of some first quality magazines.

It's kinda funny that I got home today and see this thread. I got an unexpected refund on an insurance premium that is now burning a hole in my pocket. I stopped by my local gun shop and saw that exact gun! This is most likely a question for canebrake (but anybody else please chime in too), would you pay the extra $100 for the Gold Cup over the Gov't model?
