Colt Gold Cup Trophy




I own 3 1970 series Gold Cup (2 new in box and 1 I shoot regularly.) I would like to purchase a new Colt Gold Cup Trophy.

Does anyone have information on quality, materials and accuracty of the current Gold Cup Trophy?

I have Gold Cups in Series 70, 80 and the Gold Cup Trophy. I feel the new Gold Cups are the best that they have made. Everything fits tighter and better.

I picked up a Gold Cup Trophy two fun shows ago. It is the best 1911 I have, and I have quite a few. The trigger action is unbelievable. Everything is very tight and crisp. This Trophy has dovetailed sights. and an extended beavertail and bright stainless on the flats, with the rest matte. The owner said it came from the Custom Shop and he had to wait a year for it.

Not sure all Trophy's are like this one, but if they are I would grab all I could.

I think that the Gold Cup Trophy is definately a best buy in a Colt 1911. Here is my under 500 sn example. I had a true S/A beavertail installed by a very competent gunsmith and have added checkered rosewood grips with Colt medallions. This gun is very accurate and has never misfired. It was manufactured in the Custom Shop. The first ones came with Vidicki hammer and trigger, Kings barrel bushing, checkered Main Spring Housing, and enhanced tolerences from the factory. These guns are fitted right, not too tight. It also came with a test target.

You cannot go wrong with a Gold Cup Trophy in my opinion.

Regards,

Chuck

I'll second what Flame Red noted about the trigger. The action on both of my GCT's is the equal of any gun I've shot. No creep whatsoever. My only beef is that the sights are difficult for my eyes to pick up indoors. Outdoors, they are among my favorite guns to shoot.

Thank you for the kind comments.

The grips came from Big Buck Enterprises. The fellow that I deal with is Doug Driscol. You can reach him at 706 625-0008. Email [email protected]
