View Full Version : Gold Cup
28th November 2009, 14:56
I just passed 1500 rounds and it is the best 1911 I have ever owned. For a long time my STI was the high mark for accuracy, but the Gold Cup is by far the better pistol. Consistently shoots 1.5 inches at 25 yeards. Im in the process of selling the STI to make room for a Volkman. I talked with Luke Volkman and it will be four months for delivery. Still, the Gold Cup is the high water mark.

I consider mine to be the some of the best buys I have made in the 1911 world and love them.

I too am a big fan of the Colt Gold Cup.
Of the ones I have none have ever given me trouble.

I am currently 4 months SINCE delivery of my Volkmann...and it is by far the most accurate 1911 I have ever owned...
Sorry...don't mean to hijack the thread....I still have (and shoot) my Gold Cup Trophy

I still have my GCNM I bought new in 1977. It is a "tack driver" or "50 yard gun". Now with about 3,500 rounds through it, the roll pin in the sight did fail at 2,500 rounds. Colt sent me two new roll pins for free. It will stay this way till I die as I continue to shoot and enjoy it.
