1. We have added the ability for anyone to 'bump' threads that they have created. This is mainly useful in the classifieds area where posters constantly bump for sale threads to bring it to the top. This allows them the ability to do that without having to clutter the thread with extra 'TTT' and 'Bump' type posts. To bump it, go inside your thread and click on 'Thread Tools' at the top, then select 'bump'. You can bump only once per 24 hour period.

    I have a Colt 45 Gold Cup with original case. This is a used gun, but looks like new.

    Series 80,Mark IV, Gold Cup National Match. Pictures upon request, of course.

    $900 asking price or best offer.

    Is the top of the slide flat or round? Colt's made them both ways.

    Typically the newer ones have a round slide. The round slide is heavier and more suitable for Hardball, the flat slide has a distinctive look.

    The sight plane itself is flat, but has rounded corners coming up to it... is this round or flat?

    Coach, isn't the round top called a Gold Cup Trophy? I though National Match were flat. But it's been a long time since I was into Colts.

    You might get some action over on the Colt Forum if no interest here. I think it's free. Jim

    I have an early 80 series SS Gold Cup. It has the flat top serrated slide. If they have changed it is a cost cutting measure.

    "The round slide is heavier and more suitable for Hardball" won't matter if the recoil spring is too light.

    Dear Jerry

    You are right about a 1911 with a 14 lb spring, but the flat top Gold Cup had the sides milled for the ribbed top. The slide is lighter, and 'Cups of that era had the rear sight attached by a roll pin. Not a good combo to run Hardball through.

    I always considered a 'Cup a Soft Ball gun.

    It's the size of the roll pin that matters. Colt used a heavier roll pin with a Pythin rear sight for the Delta Gold Cups (10mm). They're rougher on the sights than any hardballer. I have a 24 lb spring in mine.
