    With all due respect, you might find a buyer if you posted a more realistic price. The gun shown is valued by the most recent gun pricing books at about $1000 if in NIB condition. This gun is admittedly fired, and there are quite a few very prominent scratches on the stainless. The gun in the condition pictured would proably sell in the $700 to $850 price range. No offense meant, just offering an educated opinion as a gunsmith and dealer very familiar with the Colt auto pistol.

    Bought this Colt's for $700 a while back.

    A more realistic price will help sell your gun. It is a shooter, not in good enough shape to be a collectible. Remember, we ARE in a recession.

    I bought a Colt Single Action Army in K-Mart in 1975 for $340. Now if I still had it it would be worth a couple grand if it was still new that is. I have seen these gold cups years later with 10,000 rounds through them and used the last ten years as a nut cracker. This isn't a slopy loose beater but a collectors item. If you don't like the price go look for something you can afford don't bother me with your down grading dribble. A brand new Gold Cup will never sell cheaper in this $1961.00 an ounce for gold economy.

    I'm sorry, I must have missed something here.... Aside from the name, what on earth does the price of gold have to do with your overpriced Colt pistol?

    You could probably get your price if it WAS made of gold, but given how scratched it is, that'd probably be a stretch....

    Sorry, but your definition of "Brand New", and mine, differ slightly.

    The mark of an educated and intelligent person is their ability, and willingness, to listen to those around them, who may, just may, know more than oneself.

    Esp. those who know this gun, the business, and the value thereof.

    Just to remind you, your gold cup is NOT NEW (see the scratched slide in picture #1) and gold is $1760 an ounce and on the way down.

    Edit - guys this is a loosing argument and logic does not apply here.
