    COLT PISTOL 1911 .. 45 ACP--NATIONAL MATCH.

    Hi guys I need help in this one .....

    I need you opinion.

    Colt National Match.....Serial Number 1851-NM

    Year of Production ?

    In 1957, Colt reintroduced a "National Match" pistol that had adjustable sights and trigger, and slanted slide serrations. It was officially designated the "Colt Gold Cup National Match," although "Gold Cup" wasn't added to the slide until 1970. These pistols are serial numbered 26-NM to 37025-NM.

    (the clip is not the original )

    How much ,Do you think it is worth in this condition ?????

    Hi,
    I have seen these going any where from $900 - $1150.
    Personaly I think they should be worth more. But thats the market.

    A regular Colt commercial model would be worth that, wouldn't it? Do the Gold Cups have a crummy reputation? Aren't they fitted better and more accurate than a regular one?

    The Gold Cup is a fine target pistol and usually quite acurate . It's nothing more than a nice tight 1911 with a few matched parts and a rather smooth tight slide.
    I have used one for a few years and I think they are under valued.
    They also make a realy poor cary gun due to it's high sharp front sight , which seems to get cought up on everthing and also for tearing up the inside of any holster you might own.
    The one I owned really hated any dirt and worked best when it was super clean.
    Even though it is a tuned up 1911 you can't treat it like one. Rember, it's a target pistol.
    and not a combat pistol.

    Just my 2 cents.

    That NM would bring around $2,200 at least. Hell 70 Series 1911s bring a $1,000. A Gold Cup is a tough gun. I have one that has shot hundreds of IPSC matches. The only thing that was changed was the springs and a bever tail was added.

    RC,

    I agree with you that a Gold Cup should be worth more than the going price of $900 -$1150.
    However please keep in mind that Lous Ferando is in Canada and thier used gun prices are totaly different than that of the US. Some of it dosen't make sence but the bottom line is what the public is willing to pay.

    As an example a CZ-27 is only worth about $75 - $100 in VG-Exc. condition.
    How much are they worth were you live?
    In Canada a JUNK parts luger is worth $600
    A Swiss Luger starts off at $2500. and goes up from there.

    I myself just bought 6 Brettas 1935 for $55 each in G-VG condition ( no clips).

    Some firearms have a hugh differance in price , some are cheaper ,some are more expencive and some are the same. It all depends on were you live and what the public wants.

    Sorry about the typo on your name.
    I have a really crap keyboard.

    I was simply tryng to explane the differances between US prices and Canadian prices.
    I have been a Canadian dealer for about twenty years . ( now retired) And I have to admit I don't like the disparity between pricing.

    You have some really nice 45s in your last pic.
    As to your Gold Cup, I think anyone who buys it at ANY price is getting a bargin because they simply are a very good target gun.

    $1200 in my neck of the woods. I sold one almost Identical to that to a friend and that was the going rate about a year ago when I sold it.

    Something y'all seem to be missing is, this is NOT a Gold Cup. It is pre-Gold Cup. That would, probably, make it worth more than a Gold Cup, just like a Series 70 Gold Cup is worth more than a Series 80 Gold Cup. Comparing the value of this gun to what you could or could not sell a Gold Cup for is inaccurate, as this is NOT a Gold Cup.
