Default 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

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.

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!

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?
