    If I can't find a 70 Gold Cup Nat'l Match...

    To find a Series 70 Colt Gold Cup National Match. 45 in 95% condition or above in California is tough. So if I continue on this path striking out, what would be the next closest to the Colt for that great sense/feel (other than a series 80)? Is it a Wilson, Les Baer, .........that is approved in Ca? I have my series 70's and commanders etc but am jonesing for that Gold Cup and might have to settle for "next best."
    What do you think? Thank you. Cadiz

    Keep looking you'll find one, sounds like a colt is your first choice so stick with it, but it might take a while

    Go with a Series 80 Colt Gold Cup .... its a small compromise.

    I second the 80's series Gold Cup. You can either go with the older MKIV Series 80 or the new Gold Cup Trophy Model. They are both excellent.

    It depends on the reason(s) behind your lustings for a S70 GC. If you're filling out a collection of older Colts, then a Series 80 or Trophy would be "next best". If you're looking for something that "looks like" a GC and probably outperforms a S0 GC, the. Baer PII would be worth looking at. A 95% S70 GCNM is going to set you back around $1000. A nice Baer PII (used) can be had for $1200ish. I have several S70 GCs--and Baer PII. The Baer will easily outshoot any of the GCs in my hands, but I own the GCs for different reasons.

    My Series 80 Gold Cup is one of the finest shooting handguns in my collection.
