View Full Version : Colt Gold Cup Commander
1st October 2007, 17:23
I saw a used Colt GC Commander .45 blue in like NIB condition priced at $1,100. Isn't that way too high? Also, the slide to frame fit is below standard considering it's a GC. Meaning it rattles. Aren't Gold Cups slide to frame fit supposed to be tight?

Gold Cup slide/frame fit can be pretty sloppy on some. The older ones were fit nicely but some have been loose enough to rattle. My first Gold Cup rattled like a box of loose parts and shot about the same.
$1100 probably isn't that bad for one of those, they're not very common.

I would say that is a pretty good price if it is in good shape. They were produced in limited numbers. Slide to frame fit should be snug but not tight.

A Gold Cup AND a Commander - wow! If you don't want it, tell the rest of us where it's available....BTW, my used 1982 GCNM shakes a little slide-to-frame when the hammer is cocked and locked, but almost none with the hammer down. The barrel-to-slide fit is without any movement at all, and it shoots way better than I can. Cheers!

Not an unreasonable price if indeed it is LNIB with all paperwork. If I found another one at that price I would get it....

If it is in Arizona, New Mexico, Colorado, Wyoming, SD, or a few other states out here and you don't want to buy it for that price then let me know.

I know they made 2 different runs of those pistols. The first run had 500 blue and 500 stainless and had distinct rollmarks vs the later run. I picked mine up this spring with the box and all the papers and a wooden presentation box for 989.00. It is a first run pistol.
Mine is tight and shoots great!

Very nice pistol. Be sure it is stuffed in the right foam rubber that will not hurt the finish.

Price seems to be within reason. Again these are fairly rare. Last two I have seen have been priced at $1260 and $1400.

Thanks for the comments on the pistol. While I was doing the paper work on the gun 2 people came up to me and asked me if I wanted to sell it. I quickly said no and then went outside and another guy must have read the end of the box from behind me and offered me 1300 cash on the spot.
I havent seen too many of these but know of one new in the box that is highly polished stainless and the store owner wants 1700.00. I saw one on Gunsamerica.com for 1500 new in the box earlier this spring.
I think that 1100 is a fair price. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder!
Buy it take it home and feed it....shells lots of shells!
