Default Four Generations of the Colt National Match / Gold Cup

got some new grips, so I took out the national matches for a group shot.



Top to bottom:
1) 1960s Colt National Match
2) Series 70 Colt Gold Cup National Match
3) Series 80 Colt Gold Cup National Match
4) Current production Colt Gold Cup Trophy

In terms of fit/finish, the best is the Series 80 but that's because it's a Talo Special Edition ("National Match Royal Gold Cup"). Next would be 1960s National Match, then the Series 70, and in last place the current production Gold Cup Trophy. You can tell from the pic that the gun is much less polished, and the rollmarks are "over" stamped.

Beautiful collection! Thanks for sharing.

Interesting to see the difference in finish on the current model. They don't make em like they used to.
