    So I'm in the market...I'm wanting a colt gold cup but I'm confused about all the different ones. Could anyone lay out what the diff is between the gold cup, gold cup trophy, gold cup mk VI, etc. ???

    If you're talking about the two current offerings available in the 2012 catalog this is what they look like;

    [​IMG]

    Colt's GCT (Gold Cup Trophy) - High rise beavertail, Combat Hammer (Modern look)

    [​IMG]

    Colt's GCNM (Gold Cup National Match) - Duck bill safety tang, Spur Hammer (GI look)

    If you're talking about older Gold Cups here's a visual. (There are a number of Gold Cup and National Match pistols manufactured from 1919 to present. Far more than I have space to list.)

    Top to bottom: 1960's GCNM, Series 70 GCNM, Series 80 GCNM and a GCT.

    What did you end up picking up? I just purchased a colt delta elite as well as the gold trophy cup.

    It's called a Browning Hi Power. It needed double stack because it's a 9mm.

    Sure doesnt. A para 2011-14 model holds 14 rounds in a single stack frame.
