This Gold Cup is stainless steel with wrap around rubber grips. My other 1911 has imitation Ivory and there is a world of difference in the feel of this one in hand. I hate to part with it, but economics requires it.
The Colt Gold Cup is known as the finest shooting semi-automatic in the world, and is the standard for competitive guns. The first Colt Gold Cup pistol was introduced in the late 1950’s to give competitive shooters a gun to take directly from the dealer’s showcase to the firing line. Colt Gold Cup pistols have been used to compete in local club matches through the National Matches at Camp Perry. It features an Adjustable Wide Trigger, National Match® Barrel, Adjustable Target Sights, and many other refinements as standard. Features

This Colt has been fired once and cleaned many times in the 12 years I've owned it. GCTO2792 is the serial number. There are a lot of modifications to a Gold Cup from a regular 1911. It has the smoothest trigger pull of any pistol I've ever fired. That is one of the modifications. I have two card posted with Guns of America. Payment will have to go to the debit card at time of purchase as the other one is a credit card.
It comes with the original box and instructions.
