Someone wants to trade a Colt Gold Cup to me for my sig tacops. I have not ever owned a colt is this a good deal. I am going to post some pics here. He said it was all original, it has no box. He said the condition was about 85% to 90%. What are you thoughts and is this a good deal? What would the value be on this and does it look to be original?

I have a kimber TLE 2 that I shoot all the time this would totally be for the safe and to pass down later down the line. I have always wanted to own a colt. this has some wear on it and I was just wondering if it was worth getting. I like the sig tac ops I am just not really attached to it. This seems like a great opportunity to jump on a what seems to be "classic Colt" for $900 what I have in the Sig. I am just wondering do these hold there value even though it is 85 to 90% condition. will this pistol continue to be collectible? by the way thank you all for answering my questions.

Just as a point of reference, I bought a 1974 gold cup a year ago for $1200. Shoot it every week and have never looked back. Good luck!
Thank you for the insight. I emailed the guy back we are trading tomorrow. I will let you guys know how I like it. I am very thankful for the insight on here. I am new to the 1911 world and will be very new to colts. I have noticed that other than gun broker you do not see the 70's GCNM readily available and that they seem to be becoming more rare. I am guessing people will continue to hold onto these as time goes on.

So I ended up trading for the colt. I could not be happier about the choice to do so. I am a bit lost with the comments about a "lightened slide" can you seasoned colt 1911 owners explain to me what you guys are talking about. Thank you.
