A few years ago Colt re-introduced the Gold Cup Trophy in the Series 80. The Trophy continues to offer the wide triggers, as found on the National Match, with the absence of the internal Sear Depressor. With a Dove Tail mounted front sight, Lowered and Flared ejection port, Gold Cup half cocked hammer notch, National Match barrel ( With narrowed hood), polished feed ramp, throated barrel chamber, checkered steel mainspring housing, beveled magazine well, shorter grip tangs, oval style hammer , 3 1/2 lb. factory trigger, and a BoMar rear sight; The price of this pistol is a bargain.
The very first thing I did to mine was install a drop in Wilson Combat Grip Safety. With the shorter grip tangs on the frame, in my opinion, the Wilson is much better than the factory safety. The Gold Cups have long been criticized for their rear Elliiason sight and long sight cut on the slide; Installing a Bomar on these required welding in the old cut and re milling a new cut for the BoMar. The Model 05070X solves that old problem.
This pistol is from Colt's Custom Shop, it is accurized, with a round top slide, and polished flats. I paid $859. for mine at my local dealership. I did not compare prices, nor was I looking around for deals on other 1911s; I saw this pistol, handled it, and bought it with no regrets. This is a well fitted pistol, very solid, and a real pleasure to shoot.
