    Talo Gold Cup Trophy

    Hello all,


    I found a NIB Talo Gold Cup Trophy at my LGS.
    My issue is I already have a Gold Cup Lite and they are asking $1500 for the Talo version. Is it worth the extra $300 over what I am seeing they went for when it was in production? Is there enough of a difference between the two to buy another Gold Cup Trophy?


    Thanks, Eugene

    If it is like the one below then I would say no.

    I do have a GCT Lite I bought in 2018 in 38 Super. Nice pistol.

    If you do not like the grips/stocks on your GCT Lite then go to Altamont or another grip/stock maker and find some you love.

    Probably should have posted a picture of my 2018 GCT Lite in 38 Super. Below it is above my 2015 GCT in 45 ACP. The 2015 GCT is a Series 80 and of course all the new Gold Cups do not have the Series 80 parts in them. The 2015 came with rubber wrap around grips and I replaced those with some wood stocks I ordered from Altamont. Thus my comment about you can buy the grips or stocks you love if you don't like what comes with the pistol.



    Now for me the ones I like even more are the GCNMs, even the new Series 70s. Below my 2015 in 45ACP on top and my 2017 in 9mm below it.

    My Talo looks like the one in the link you posted above.
