I'm looking to buy my first 1911 and have narrowed the brand down to Colt. Now I'm just trying to decide on model and wanted to seek some guidance and/or suggestions. What are the main differences in the line-up features (I'm completely new to these). In particular, the Gold Cup Trophy vs. National Match?
Appreciate any info you can share. Thanks!
Sorry, I meant "Gold Cup Trophy" vs. "Gold Cup National Match"
Yes, current production. Sorry for not stating in my initial post.
OK, both of those models are listed @ the link I gave above.
The Trophy is a stainless steel gun with a "Commander" hammer and beavertail grip safety.
The GC National Match is a blued carbon steel gun with standard grip safety and spurred hammer.
Both are "accurized"
GC National Match
So essentially the hammer and finish. Thank you very much for the help.
