    The Sig is made for them by GSG. It's one of the few firearms they don't produce for themselves.

    I have shot the GSG & found it to be a good shooter right out of the box. Don't own one but work in a LGS with an indoor range and get to shoot lots of new toys that customers that become friends like to share:D.

    The Colt .22 1911 can be had in Gold Cup as well. I have a GSG 1911 .22 with the after market barrel bushing and guide rod. Damn nice .22 plinker. It has filled many body bags. With empty beer cans.;)

    Yeah that's the one I got except mine is the "rail gun" version. There's 3 versions (govt model/rail gun/gold cup). Made by Walther, licensed by Colt, imported by Umarex; confusing huh! A lot of parts on this are interchangeable with actual colt 45 parts, so lots of options to make it unique. Very happy I got it.

    Mine has been excellent for about 1,000 rounds. I have the base model and it has never FTE/FTF. Real accurate and the only thing I would like better would be better sights like the Gold Cup model. Not willing to trade though because mine is so good.

    Nice to see some fellow Colt/Umarex folks on here. For the OP, here's a picture of the different models...



    You can order the Gold Cup sights if you want them. I ordered some stuff through Umarex and it was a pleasant experience if you want to go that route.. Part #'s below

    Front sight, Gold Cup, assembly: 517.702.01
    Rear sight, Gold Cup, assembly: 517.702.02

    I have a Colt Ace, post WWII. Great to shoot a 1911 with cheap ammo. I think Blue Book is around a grand, and pre WWII at about $3500.

    What are your thoughts on a desert eagle 44?!

    Good or junk?

    It's just me, but I don't like their looks or the reason for .44 mag semi auto. My 4" 629 is about 35yrs old and magna ported. I love it. Just a matter of taste. I use Cabela's Gun Library to get some idea of value. They are high. Gun Broker too.

    In a NY minute!

    I've got both, the GSG and the Colt Gold Cup.

    They both are heads above the Browning I shot.

    The Colt is worth the up-charge over the GSG.
