Gold Cup National Match, every day of the week. Twice on Saturday. Three times on Sunday.

Somebody just offered me a stainless Gold Cup NM, less than 30 minutes ago, for a lot less than $1k.
Less than 100 rounds through it.

Fighting the urge to pry my wallet open!!! :)

I know there are a "Bunch" of 1911 folks who love their 2-3-4k models...and they are welcome at the table...but I have owned several sub 500 models which shot perfectly to POA, were ultra reliable, but obviously were not nearly as well finished.
I guess it all hinges on the ultimate purpose...Col Cooper opined; "All a quality 1911 needs is a decent trigger, good sights and to be reliable...but his thinking was geared towards the SD market, where the ability to hit a human size target at "fighting" distance was of paramount importance.
Indeed. While I appreciate handguns as art, I’m not a fan. I like my weapons to be durable, accurate, and dependable, and find my “art objects” elsewhere.

First choice would be used STI Sentry not sure of caliber, maybe 9mm, second choice would be a 9mm Gold Cup.

Kimber Super Match II. I'd have to add some with the $1400 but that's ok...the $1400 is the bulk of the deal.

One of the DW suppressor ready 9mm models. I just checked GB and there are some just under $1400.

I'd probably try and find a slightly used DW VBOB in 10mm

I traded for my first Gold Cup at a gun show in February. I ended up selling it for $900 because it was a series 80. I'd probably have kept it if not for that. If somebody offered me a stainless Gold Cup for well under $1K right now, I'd buy it and take it to the gun show next weekend and see what I could get out of it.

If I was spending $1,400 on a 1911, I'd probably go down to Bud's or KY Gun Co. and see what they had in stock - I'd lean toward Colt or Springfield Armory, steel frame, checkered front strap, none of that drop-safety series 80 crap and no external extractors.
