The first Colt Gold Cup® pistol was introduced in the late
1950’s to give competitive shooters a gun to take directly from the dealer’s
shelf to the firing line. It featured an adjustable wide trigger, hand-honed
action, adjustable target sights, flat grooved top rib on the slide, and many
other refinements as standard.
Today, the Colt Gold Cup is known as the finest shooting automatic in the
world, and is the standard for competition guns.
