Colt Gold Cup National Match Series ‘70 Pistol Sold to Colt Employee (

  • Maker: Colt
  • Model: Gold Cup
  • Caliber: .45 ACP

  • Description: Serial #08700N70, .45 ACP, 5" barrel with an excellent, bright bore. This is an early 80s pistol that features a matted rib slide, Elliason adjustable target rear sight, adjustable trigger stop, and original Colt wrap-around neoprene grip. The pistol retains practically all of the original blue finish while the synthetic grip is likewise almost unused. There is, however, a single, tiny spot of brown freckling at the top of the trigger on the left side. The pistol is housed in the original, numbered woodgrain box with styrofoam insert, manual, and a single original magazine. Also included is a 1986 dated Colt factory letter, addressed to the original purchaser, which lists a ship date of December 16, 1981. The remarks at the bottom of the letter state that the purchaser was, "a valued Colt employee at time of purchase." This is an almost unused Series 70 Gold Cup NM, with a a great Colt employee connection, and would make a splendid addition to any collection. FFL
