Well guys, I picked up the Colt that I won on Gunbroker last week... http://www.gunbroker.com/Auction/ViewItem.aspx?Item=173430688 As I figured, the seller's photos did this gun little justice. In fact, though I tried my best, I'm not even sure my photos fully represent this classic. Its got to be one of the most beautiful pistols, 1911 or otherwise, that I've ever seen in my life. It really is that nice. On top of that, everything about the gun is top quality. The trigger is terrific, the controls very precise, and the gun is remarkably tight. I feel no side to side play between the slide and frame whatsoever. I can't say that about my new Colts or very many of my newer production guns. Colt really built these things back then. Other than the box and paper work, there is no mention of the moniker "Gold Cup". All the gun says is "National Match" and I believe that's what they were referred to. "Gold Cup" wasn't stamped on these guns until the series 70 was introduced and mine is pre series 70. Enough rambling, I'll let the pics do the talking. The Colt royal bluing back then was a sight to behold and this gun looks like it just left the factory, despite being 43 years old. I love how the Elliason sight is called "new" on the notice in this pic.
