Colt Gold Cup National Match

Picked up a new GCNM 9mm. Its one of those guns I've always wanted and never got around to, always got something else. I've had a 9mm Range Officer and a Loaded Target Springfield, I always thought they should have grouped better than they did. I have hopes this Colt will do just a tad better than the Springfields.

Sort of understand. Back in the fall of 2014 I bought a SA RO in 45. Then in about Jan or so of 2015 I bought a SA RO in 9mm. I was getting better groups with the 45. I talked with shooting buddies who have been in 9mm land longer than I and they suggested I go to heavier bullets and even target rounds for the 9mm.




Later I did get a 2017 GCNM in 9mm to go with my 2015 GCNM in 45ACP.




I am still playing in this area. I went down the 10mm road and so have not spent a lot of time in 9mm land.

Congrats on the pistol. I'm going to pick up a GCNM 38 Super this weekend. It will not be a safe queen.

Congratulations on your purchase, I am sure youíll be happy with it.

I have an older GCNM in .45, itís a tack driver at 25 meters.



Then again regular Coltís perform well too

I’m definitely an EGW fan, but look into their angle bore bushings. If you have calipers, call them and they’ll explain how to measure if you’re unsure. They make it easy to have a tight fit bushing and can greatly help accuracy. I put them on all my 1911’s A-because the monogram thick flange looks incredible and B-they work as advertised. Try one out. It may help. Also, the gold cup pistols are beautiful. Enjoy it!

This new gun did everything I expected, no problems of any kind. Several 10 shot groups fired, 9 in the same ragged hole, always one in every crowd. Picture ,is last group fired 10 rounds, one ragged hole. Rested at 10 yards, Blazer 115Gr ammo. At 77 years young, groups like this one makes me smile.

esmith1721, that is one heck of a target ... I imagine the others at the range were quite impressed!

That'd make me smile too. Nice shooting!

Congrats to you!! I picked up the same last year, it's a great shooter right out of the box, I'm only at 300 rounds and never had a hiccup. Enjoy!!...
