    Hi all,

    I have a Colt Gold Cup Series 70 in 45 acp that I'm thining about selling. However, I have no idea what it might be worth so I thought I'd ask here before making my final decision to sell or keep.

    I am not the original owner, but the gun has been shot very little. No wear on the bluing anywhere - including the ejector port. Gun is bone stock with no mods. Original wood grips and one original magazine. I do not have any of the original packaging or papers. No scratches anywhere either.

    Thank you in advance for your help.

    Brian

    If you want to sell it for $700 I will take it. But I think you would be cheating yourself out of a couple hundred dollars. Bulge.

    A Gold Cup would be in the $900 to 1100 price point.. a plain series 70 would be in the $700 range

    Might I add.. they normally shoot pretty good right out the box.. The trigger is much improved from the standard series 70.. I'd check the lockup..barrel fit and link.. You'd be surprised how just a wee bit of fine tuning can really make the gun shoot better... I own the exact same gun..Some 25,000 rounds later..a new barrel bushing and minor adjusting of the rails returned her to excellent accuracy.. I'd keep her.. You will regret selling her if you do... All Good.. Mike

    Thanks guys for your input. It's much appreciated. Keeping the gun would be the ideal situation, but I've owned it for 5 years now and have never even fired a shot out of it. Now that I have a sense of its worth, I can decide if I want "re-deploy" my resources elsewhere.

    It sounds like there is at least some interest in a gun like this. Unfortunately, I'm in Canada, and the potential market here is a lot smaller than down south where most of you guys are.

    Best regards,
