    My local gs has a Colt Gold Cup National Match with an Ace conversion kit. The shop is closing so the prices are down a little. This is a used gun and I think it was made in 1978.
    It has a few marks on it including an idiot scratch.

    Thoughts and opinions appreciated. According to Gunbroker the reduced price is about what it should have been to start with. It isn't a deal but it's fair enough.

    All thoughts and opinions appreciated. The sooner the better because I have to make a decision within the next 24 hrs. Thanks SG.

    Well, it depends on the price. But, you have to check the collet bushing to see if it is still intact. If so, I'm guessing somewhere around 700-800 is a fair price.

    Series 70 National Match Gold Cups are great 1911s, Rhonda.

    If you think the price is right for the condition, go for it. :)

    if you are talking about a complete gold cup plus the conversion I'd say a price of 1300 or less would be what I think is reasonable.

    I've seen Ace conversion kits sell for $500+
