Featured Gun – Colt Series 70 Mark IV Gold Cup National Match For Sale
What Makes The Colt Series 70 Mark IV Gold Cup National Match Special?
Many consider the Gold Cup National Match the best shooting semi-automatic pistol in the world. The very first Gold Cup pistol came out at the tail end of the 1950’s. Colt’s idea was to create a competition pistol that was ready for the firing line straight out of the box.
Why Do You Need THIS Gun?
Because this is a series ’70 gun, it does not have the firing pin safety in it.
The trigger pull is just about as light and crisp as you can get.
Every Gun Tells A Story. Here’s 1918 Artillery Luger P-08’s Story.
The Colt Government Mk. IV Series 70, manufactured from 1970 to 1983, introduced the accurized Split Barrel Bushing (collet bushing). The first 1000 prototypes in the serial number range 35800NM – 37025NM were marked BB on the barrel and the slide. Commander sized pistols retained the solid bushing.
Later came the MKIV/Series 70 Gold Cup 75th Anniversary National Match/Camp Perry 1978. Production was limited to 200 pistols (Wikipedia).
