1967 COLT GOLD CUP NATIONAL MATCH
This is Colt National Match 1911. It was made before these were badged as "Gold Cup Models" in 1967. This was made back when they were hand fitted, finished and assembled. With today's automation and rush to production, they don't make them like this anymore.
Serial number 20565-NM has some performance adds that enhance the accuracy and overall performance of this 1911 including;
*5" National Match Barrel
* National Match Slide
*Custom Mag Release
*Aftermarket trigger ( not sure what manufacturer)
*Colt Wood Grip Panels
*Elliason Rear Sights
This is a very tight pistol, the barrel lock bushing has been custom fitted to the gun so you must use a barrel bushing wrench to remove the barrel bushing, this tightens up the barrel and improves the accuracy of the gun. Overall it is in excellent condition showing only minor handling marks. This is a 51-year-old Colt National Match 1911 that will make an excellent and accurate carry or match gun without having to spend thousands of dollars on a gun that you are hesitant to shoot because you might scratch or devalue it by shooting it. Buy this one, enjoy it, have some fun and outshoot your buddies with their high dollar guns!
