    Here is some more Eye Candy from my personnel pistol collection….

    FOR YOUR VIEWING PLEASURE..

    COLT Polished Stainless Steel Gold Cup Series 1980

    ____________________________________________________________________________


    For you Gold Cup fans. This is a 1980 Series Polished Stainless Steel Gold Cup that was manufactured in 1981 in very limited quantities. It sports a 5 ½” barrel. The grips are genuine Ivory.

    The case is an old cigar humidor that I converted into the Display Case.(Not bad for an old guy). This one is unfired and I have the original box and papers to go a long with it.

    Yes, I know this one is unfired too, but don’t worry, I have the same gun in the 1970 Series, that I do shoot. (Thank goodness!)

    Thanks for looking,

    Stu Gabriel (MrGun)

    Not intended to steal your thread, but this remind me the one I have, not quite the same thing, but close, it says Series 70 on the slide:

    Far, far from a lousy gun. Perazzi BB nows his stuff....

    When I was able to shoot in club matches my guns of choice where:

    Colt Gold Cup Series 1970 (.45 Auto)

    Smith & Wesson Model 52 (.38 Wad Cutter)

    Smith & Wesson Model 41 (.22)

    All of the above had custom hand made Fung Grips, that are made to fit your hand like a glove and really help you to keep steady.

    Thanks for the interest....

    train222 just a point of curiosity for me. Do you remember how much more one of the series "1980" guns sold for when new than a standard issue Stainless Colt 1911 A1 of the day?????

    What tweaks my curiosity here is I have standard length 5" barrels and 6" barrel 1911's but this s the first 5 1/2" barrel I have ever seen. I am not doubting your word I just have never seen or heard of a 5 1/2" barrel before.

    Bob,

    I stand corrected on the barrel length. I was looking at the specs on a different pistol, when I wrote this thread. It is A 5" Barrel.

    Gold Cup National Match 1980 Series the M.S.R.P was $937.00

    Gold Cup National Match 1980 Series in Stainless M.S.R.P was $1177.00

    Hope this is the info you where looking for...

    Thanks for looking,

    Stu Gabriel (MrGun)

    Ya it is Stu quit a bit of difference in Standard and stainless. Of course the way the pistol looks it sure make it look worth the difference.

    Thanks for the clarification

    "Awesome" is probably the most over-used word in the English language, but your diverse and stunning gun collection is truly AWESOME! As nice as this pistol is, it's probably not even in your top 50 special guns. Thanks again for sharing all your treasures with us. I love seeing your posts and gun pictures.
