Gold Cup National Match in .38 Super??




Has Colt ever produced such an animal? I've got a friend that has caught the Colt bug and is trying to get as many MK IV Series 80 Gold Cup variations as he can. We ran across a Series 80 .38 super at a gun show this past weekend, and we was wondering if he should just look for a GC if it was made.

Colt made a Super Elite that was part of a series for distributor Lew Horton(?) that included the Elite IX (9mm) and possibly others. I'm not sure if there were any other GC .38 Supers made. I think that this forum's SuperMan has a Super Elite. I believe their were some pre-WWII National Match guns in .38 Super (pricey), but you specifically asked about S80 guns.

Yes, there have been Gold Cups in Super. I seem to recall a gun called Super Stallion, that was a Gold Cup style pistol in Super .38.

I've only seen 3 variants of the GC S80 .38 Super:
  1. The two-tone Elite Super
  2. The all Stainless Match Target
  3. The all blue Super Stallion

I have one that is all-stainless called "GOLD CUP National Match / Match Target .38 Super".

The gun is extremely accurate but the series number is confusing me -- "CMT 2XX" (XX are 2 numbers).

They are around and not cheap anymore unless you get lucky. I had hopes Talo would do the the Colt 9mm (9x19) GCNM, which although based on the GCT would give one entry into 38Super (9x23SR), and many other cals. using different barrels fitted to the pistol.

It seems like your collection does not have mine -- mine looks just like the middle one of the very right column.

Neat gun, lots of fun to shoot, but not that accurate. I got a bum barrel.

...aaaaaaaaaaaa...I think I would be calling Colt on that barrel!!!

The first Gold Cup in .38 Super was a very limited run in the early 1960s. I have only see two or three of them in the 30+ years I have shooting Super.

I have a Gold Cup Super Elite and it is a good shooter. They usually sell in the $1500-2000 range...

Then there is this....

Good luck to your friend....Bob

I did call colt. "Not the original owner, too far out of warranty"

Right now I am in a state of flux. The gun will double or triple fire sometimes so I need to have it worked over. I am debating having it stripped of its series 80 parts, new barrel put in and a full trigger workover along with some rods for the rails to tighten the gun up a bit and make it a shooter.

My other path is just leave it alone and park it in the safe. I have not decided yet. Probably I will rebuild it and make it a shooter.

$6500, DANG! Way out of my league. To think, i realized collecting classic cars was not to be for me ( don't ask ) so i figured i would collect my other favorite hobby. Not at THAT level, though.
