Price check S70 Gold Cup

I have a line on a S70 Gold cup. The blue is worn in areas indicative of careful use by a shooter - I'd rate in 90%. No idiot scratch or anything like that - just wear in the few places where you'd expect it.

It has a very nice trigger and clean rollmarks, etc. I think I know what one is worth but am curious to get a few more opinions. I'd like to know what the "non california" price is as we do pay a bit of a premium for these sorts of guns here.

Thanks,

Jim

I just was browsing Gunsamerica.com and found several in the $950-1,050 range. I also saw several in the $1,400-$1,500 range. And of course some substantially higher priced. I even found one for $1,200 listed as being "minty" (fresh breath anyone? ) with original box.

Many of the lower priced ones are listed as being 95 or 98% grade. Many of the higher priced ($1,500) ones claim some famous gunsmithing was involved and/or have the original box included.

Mike's: I had looked at the auction sites too but asking prices there are always high. Hard to tell what the market is when you see a bunch at $1100-$1250 from dealers and then there's an individual seller or two at $975 and none of them are moving.

Like Pyunker, my guess was $800-850. The dealer his it somewhat higher......

It is hard to tell without really looking at the insides. Remember, a lot of Gold Cups went to the range and back in nice pistol boxes, so they still look nice but have been shot a whole lot. I have seen ones like you describe from $700 to $1200 at gun stores over the last several years. Prices have been going up on Gold Cups in the last year.

One I bought new in 1977, whcih was very tight and had great build quality is not for sale but I would expect to sell it for $1K -to- $1,2K. It is about 98%+ with a round count of about 4K and has been pampered plus I do have the origenal box etc.

I recently bought an 80 series Gold Cup made in 1988 on the used market that is 95%+ and paid $700 for it at a gun store. I like to look at a used gun before I buy it.

Below is the 70 series Gold Cup top and 80 Series on the bottom.

Ditto. I paid $700 for a series 80 that was 99% or better with box and all paperwork last month. It just happened to be a guy locally. I probably would have paid $800 if he had asked it. I guess you can add or subtact whatever the price difference is on the series 70 to 80.

Price Quess?

My area a 90% would run $750-800. But only if it is really a true 90%. I'm in Middle Tenn. where guns and gun shows are plentyful!

I sold a Series 70 GC a couple of months back. It was an easy 95% gun in the box with original grips and even a letter from Colt thanking you for buying a Colt product. I got $850.00 for it. I could have probably done better but I was ready to sell it.
