And I don't want to forget the SS Gold Cups. My oldest is a 1988. I think Colt introduced the SS Gold Cups in 1986. I did replace the wrap around rubber grips with some wood stocks from Altamont on mine.



And my 1990 Delta Gold Cup. Again the wrap around rubber grips got replaced with wood stocks. I also don't like the little triangle Colt put on the grips. Looks like it came off a 1950s cap pistol.



And the new SS ones. A 2015 GCT in 45 on the bottom and a 2018 GCT Lite in 38 Super on the top.

Well, it's been a good week! After finally acquiring a Woodsman Match Target, I also managed to (finally) come upon a really nice Model 70 Mk IV Gold Cup National Match, serial says it's a 1980. Original owner, with box, papers, hang tag...like new in box. He put less than 2 boxes through it and put it away.

It's so bloody gorgeous!! :love:
And the price was....let's say outstanding.

Finally. What a score.

Really liking the Colt rampant pony on those aftermarket grips . Just a little "Bling", but classy to a point , which I admire.

Gold Cup National Match with a Bo Mar sight mfg 1972 MKIV series 70 with the matching box. Note the front and rear grip straps - good for the summer heat and humidity in North Carolina. I kind of like the BoMar's longer sight distance. How much do you think it hurts its value 20% ?

Your SS Colts are great. I've been looking for one without breaking the bank. The original checkered Rosewood medallion grips always look best.
