    I have one from '76...I'd call mine about 96% and paid $550 for it from a local auction. For yours (without seeing it) I'd say in the $800-$1000 range is likely a fair retail price.

    I have a 1979 I bought new in 79 for $369 1979 dollars. Below with a 2015 I bought new in 2015 for $1.1K 2015 dollars. If I get online and inflate 1979 dollars then 369 1979 dollars is equal to about $1.2K 2015 dollars. Just one way of looking at it.



    There was a variation in quality from gun to gun back then, as now. So you might want to inspect it before you buy.

    I agree with the 1K + or - price.

    I passed on a GCNM from 1979 last weekend at $1200. Nice gun, but the seller wouldn't budge.

    No more than $1K at best, That said, about 10 years ago I paid $1K for my mid 70's Series National Match Gold Cup. No box or any other paperwork came with it. However, it did come with a Colt .22 LR Conversion Unit. So I did not feel bad about paying that for it. As time goes along the deal looks better and better..........

    What would it cost me to replace them now? Considering all the Colt Conversion Units that I see are going for at least $500 now.

    I sold a 1978 Colt Gold Cup in 95+% two years ago for $1,200 with no box/manual etc. The guy who bought it was pretty happy with the deal.
