FIREARM HISTORY AND FEATURES:
The Colt M1911, also known as the “Government” or “Colt Government”, is a single-action, semi-automatic, magazine-fed, recoil-operated pistol chambered in .45 ACP. It served as the standard-issue sidearm for the United States Armed Forces from 1911 to 1986.
An iconic firearm, the 1911 has been copied and produced by many different manufacturers around the world and is still in production today in countless variants and configurations.
It is widely popular with civilian shooters for self-defense and competitive sports shooting, particularly USPSA, IDPA and IPSC.
Colt originally sold the the M1911A1 on the civilian market as the “Colt Government Model”.
They later redesigned the barrel bushing in an attempt to improve accuracy, and the resulting, improved Colt Government Model was officially named the “Colt Mark IV Series 70.”
The Gold Cup National Match was first introduced in the late 1950s and is still in production today.
It was designed as a more refined, match-grade pistol for competitive sport shooting, and is very highly regarded in terms of 1911 pistols.
Some of the standard features of the Gold Cup include an adjustable wide trigger, National Match barrel, Colt-Elliason adjustable rear sights, target post front sight, lowered and flared ejection port, beveled top slide and spur hammer.
This gun is in very good, used condition. It is mechanically sound and functional.
The original finish is very good, with some light wear to front of the slide, dust cover, and grip safety, as well as some extremely fine wear to the edges of the slide.
There is also a very fine, light scratch to the frame under the slide release lever.
The original, wooden Colt grips panels are still perfect.
This pistol is fitted with an aftermarket, Svenson ambidextrous manual safety, aftermarket adjustable trigger, plastic magwel, and aftermarket guide-rod.
The action is extremely tight and crisp, as you would expect.
This pistol is suitable for home self defense, but is possibly a little too large for every-day, concealed carry, unless for a large-framed person.
This firearm is suitable for use in the following sports:
- IDPA – CDP division
- SADPA MPDS – Defense Pistol (DP) division
- IPSC – Classic division – Major
- PIN SHOOTING – Stock gun & Pin gun
