national match

  1. General 1911 talk
    Hey ADDICTS!!! I could use your help. A friend of mine has an early 1911 National Match. I ran the serial number and came up with a manufacture date of 1958, this is a second year National Match pistol. It's a very strong 95% condition, in the factory box with paperwork. The bluing on it is all...

    Decided to see if I could get some better photos, mostly to have details and serial numbers on file. I'll do them one at a time so you won't tire of my experimenting. The stand fashioned by Master Zoid makes it easier

    Dan Wesson you are cruel! You yanked the 01864 Valor 9mm Blued out from under me! But there is joy in Mudville after all! How many times have I looked at the Colt catalog online at the Gold Cup listing and not seen what I was looking for time after time? I guess I am just insane for doing the...

    This one is the nicest of the old original GCNM's that I have left (it is a pre-series 70 gun). These guns do not say Gold Cup anywhere on the gun, only on the box and in the literature. They are marked National Match. To the best of my knowledge it's all original and in quite nice condition. It...

    ***SPF*** I'm wanting to clean out some space my safe. I've been sitting on this for a number of years (10+). It doesn't get used so it should be adopted by someone that will use it as was intended. Condition is excellent, the blueing is also excellent as are the polished unblued surfaces of the...

    Just bought a Colt Gold Cup Model #05870A1 that has the "National Match" Barrel. I am using this as a base gun. Would it be better to go with a Kart Barrel and fitted bushing in a build? Sonny

    And it's beautiful! Slight holster blue wear around the muzzle, mag well and front of frame professionally beveled, no dings, dents or scratches, but otherwise looks like very little use. I like it a lot, trigger seems to be 2 lbs or so, and so smooth and crisp. You can surly tell the hand...

    Im in the market for a Gold Cup NM, I like the ones from the 70's. Is 1500 too high for a nice one?

    New never fired with one tiny tiny mark on top of slide by ejection port. This gun is a real anomaly in that the roll marks on the slide are the beautiful light ones of the 60's and 70's guns. This is why I bought it and I've seen no other new ones like it. It is absolutely beautiful! $1050...

    Just wanted to share with the group the 'pride & joy' of my collection. A few day sago I purchased this 1935 NM from a 72 year old gentleman. The pistol belonged to his father who was in armed forces till 1944. This gun WAS used as it was intended to be! He was a competitive shooter (including...

    This is one of my favorite 1911 pistols. I was trying to find one at retail with no luck. Then I found this one not fired with all the stuff located near me. I jumped on it. He wanted to see my carry permit. OK, no problem. It's a good one at a discount price. He never fired it. I had to clean...

    I gave this to my wife last July for our 19th wedding anniversary. I know...I'm a sentimental kind a guy... :-) I am lucky enough to have a wife that not only supports me in my addiction but has developed one of her own. Since I introduced her to the shooting sports eight years ago, she has...
