In a New York second. Either the Gold Cup is way underpriced or the Gov't is way overpriced. I had a unfired Gold Cup Trophy for a time but it was to pretty to shoot so I traded it away...

First let me say YES!

I assume (?) your use will be target/competition and not carry??

This gun is just what the title claims, a steel 1911 with match grade barrel, rubbed on action and box to competition capable/ready.

Second let me say YES!

This model was introduced in the '50s and it's longevity speaks volumes. It's the standard for production competition 1911s.

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!

Yes, it would not be for carry, it would be target/competition.

How does that price sound to you, reasonable/high/low?

IF they have in in stock, AND it's a stainless steel Model O5070X and not the carbon steel Model O5870CS (Not a big delta but I likes me some SS Colt's!) YES, $1050 is a good solid price for a NIB GCT!

Yes, in stock, held it in my hands. And yes it is the 5070X.

Hmmmmm........

And living in the Hartford, CT area I must say that it would be cool to have a Colt firearm that made right here

Done!

Don't let us hear you whining next month how the GCT got away.

Here's the deal, Christmas is coming....right?

Who better than you can pick out a gift for you?

Don't make me come up there and twist your arm! (I'd freeze my arz off!)

Finally got to try the Tripps mag today,no ftf no issues no problems.
Initially i thought it may have been my reloads or perhaps the gun iteslf.
So after putting quite a few rounds through it today i alternated between the tripps mag and a mag with a super 7 upgrade kit and noticed no issues with tripps,however there were issues with the upgraded mag.

Quick thank you to NGIB for helping to recognise the issue and a big thanks to Canebrake for the recommendation on using Tripps mags.

Kind Regards
