COLT GOLD CUP N.M./70 SERIES

Recommended Posts

I recently ran across a deal(at least I think so) on a Colt Gold Cup National Match 70 series on another forum that I belong to. I've always wanted one in 70 series and passed on a few due to the price($1200- $2000 plus) this one I got for $850. I checked the serial# on Colts web-site and it showed it was made in 1981. The slide to frame fit is tight with no movement or rattle, has the original box(has seen better days but it is original to the gun) has a collet bushing and it fits tight to the Bbl. front strap has the vertical serrations, original grips. I haven't had time to put some rounds down it yet, but hopefully soon.  Here are a few pics.

Yeah I have about 8000 loaded and ready to go. I can't wait to run some down it and see how it shoots.

Nice piece! Watch the roll pin that holds the rear Ellison sight on. They aren't hardened very much and have been know to fail causing the rear sight to pop out and get lost. When I shot mine a lot I replaced it with a solid pin.

Thanks for the advice, do you remember the size of the pin.

      I wasn't planning on picking up a new gun "BUT" Walther just came out with the new Walther PPQ Q5 Match Steel Frame.  I sold my polymer PPQ and picked up the new steel frame.  It has been a long time since I really got excited about a new gun but I really like this gun.  It is a heavy gun at 2lbs 10oz with an empty magazine so it will be legal for SSP/ESP division in IDPA.  My main purpose for the gun is to shoot Carry Optics division and the weight limit is 45oz with an optic.  The optic I will use will be the C-more RTS2 6 MOA.  The gun does come with three mounting plates, not for the C-more.  Had to purchase one from C-more.  The grip is a little bit more aggressive than the polymer gun and I am very happy with that.  I hope to get out to the range soon and when I do I will do a range report.

      For 2019, Ruger has decided to cease production of the SR family of striker fired pistols.  

      Personally, I think they made a big mistake.  I guess they wanted to push the American but I think the SR would have done better if they released it in a "pro" model without the safety.
