      Gold Cup Question

      Hi I have a question my dad gave me a Gold Cup and he said it's pretty rare maybe you can shed some light on me I think it may may be parts gun but it's like 99.9% factory new. The left side of the side say's, "Series' 80 Colt MK IV" below it it say's GOLD CUP NATIONAL MATCH" The Barrel reads COLT 45 AUTO N.M. The right side of the barrel reads "GOLD CUP" (trophy cup next to it) and below it it reads "NATIONAL MATCH" The frame says COLT"S PT.F.A. MFG. CO. HARTFORD, CONN. U.S.A. the serial # 70B56xxx (last three I ometted) It has wood grips with gold colt logo from what I have been reading this is a Series 80 slide on a 70's frame my Dad bought it this way from Colt did they ever sell it this way??? Thanks Ed

      Not sure on this one,Ya might try posting the question (and pics if ya can) over at http://forum.m1911.org/index.php?. Hunter, OD* or some of the others over there can tell ya the straight stuff on it
      Just a heads up....they are VERY strict about language over there,If you would have to even think about whether or not to say it in front of a preacher........probably shouldnt say it

      To get the best idea of what they're going for in todays market I always check http://www.gunsamerica.com and some of the online gun auction places, that would be your best bet(and some local gunshops)

      You can call Colt and they can tell you when it was built. As for being rare, I have not heard of any GCNM 80 Series on a 70 Series frame. That's not to say Colt didn't do one as they have done some really off-the-wall combinations over the years. Take the advice given above and visit http://forum.m1911.org/index.php?

      Ed66 I'll add my 2 cents, and tell you to go to a gun show also, and see what kind of prices they are getting. The Mustangs,and Government .380s are slipping into collector status. Prices are starting to very big time on them.
      Do what Scooter and Bill told you, and you'll have a good idea of how they are selling in your area. Good luck.

      I bought a Colt Series 80 Govt Mustang at a gun show. I got it for $525. They are reaching collector status. I wish Colt would start making them again. For a 1911 fan it is a great pocket gun.
