1967 Gold cup

Got a buddy selling a gold cup unfired with original packaging. Just trying to figure out what the going price is for one of these.
Thanks,
Rob

This is where pictures will be everything. Including pictures inside the pistol when you field strip it.

Be very sure to READ the instructions. Make sure you don't shoot hardball with the wadcutter recoil spring installed. The gun should come with 2 different springs.

I think a 1967 unfired in the box will excite the Safe Queen Collectors.
Actually shooting it would lose a lot of resale value.

I don't believe they were including two springs in those days, that is a fairly recent innovation... put in place after the need had largely passed.

Don't think a '67 came with 2 springs...it was only supposed to be shot with target loads, specifically 185 gr mid-range SWC. The older guns had lightened slides that weren't designed to be shot with ball, no matter what weight of spring was in the gun. The later, series 70 GCs did not have the lightening cuts. The service pistol phase (in bullseye) is a separate National Match course, using what's called a "Service Pistol". The Gold Cup was designed to compete in the .45 phase of the National Match Course, which only requires .45 mid range loads.

I have a 1972 model GCNM with lightened slide and frame both, only shoot 185/200gr lswc's, 10 or 12lb recoil spring and 19lb main.

Had it several yrs now, pictures in gallery, no box and from estate sale, had been shot but still like new.

Got it thru GS in midwest and we shoot it alot, loves BE, WST, 231 and a little Trail Boss too.

My wifes favorite at 25yds.

I would look at the auction sights and try to find one close if not exact that actually has bids or have sold. That will give you a good idea of what the are selling for.

If you can get it for $2000.00 or less I would jump all over it.

I know of a few different guys who all own unfired 67 GCNMs actually, each one are perfect and have all paperwork, and each one of those owners paid $2500 for them. I guess that market is pretty solid.

I think you're right on that. Very collectable.
