    Colt Gold Cup 70 Series Value??

    Local party has a minty, and I mean minty Colt Gold Cup 70 Series pistol for sale. I know very little about them. Anything to look for in deviations? I can get it for around $1000. No box, just the gun. Good buy or Goodbye??

    Assuming all original and nice shape, $1k would be reasonable in my opinion. Having the box and other stuff might add another couple hundred to the value. I paid $835 and $1000 for the two I have a couple of years ago.

    I paid $700 for my Series 70 Gold Cup two years ago. Lightly used...

    Snap it up! Any price might seem to be good once New York gets an appetite for .45s and their 7 round magazine ability...and as more people see the need for guns and kids start growing up, the shortage will start and you might look back one day on $1,000 as a bargain!

    Believe if you scan the auction sites you will find these going for more than that. Got one "minty" in the box for $1600 and don't see another like it for the same money.

    Check it for a smooth action, with no sideplay.

    I got a brand-new-out-of-the-box one years ago - picked for finish and grips.

    It was a part of a trade, and I was looking for a new match gun, so I was happy 'until' I shot it (or tried to).

    Would barely cycle, because the action was so rough - compared to pretty much every military M1911A1 I had at the time.

    Shot groups about the size of a big Tupperware lid at 50 yards - I needed it to shoot lemon-sized groups.

    Traded it for a Garand.

    Look at the barrel and slide locking lugs, Barrel lugs for flanging and slide lugs for a big radius releif on the corners. (these surfaces should be nearly perfectly square, Small (very small radius is ok on the slide lugs)
    This is a noted problem for old 70 series.(the slide in turn runins the barrel)
