    Colt Gold Cup (what's it worth)

    I was just in the local pawn shop and they had this Colt Gold Cup for sale. It looks to be in very good condition. It comes with the blue plastic Colt box, all the manuals and documentation and a spare mag. They have it listed for $950 and I am not really sure what it's worth so I came here opinions.

    Probably not that far out of line, Budsgunshop's last price was $919.00. http://www.budsgunshop.com/catalog/p...ducts_id/36031
    The problem is finding them, offer them $900/925, they can only say yes or no.

    PLEASE buy it, and wipe all the dang fingerprints off it! I guess they don't wipe em down.

    It's about $150 too high for a used Gold Cup Trophy.

    It has a slide stop idiot scratch on the frame relief cut - I'd start w/ an offer of - $850.00 "Cash On The Barrelhead" - It's a great, accurate, firearm. Try and barter a bit though.
    Since it's a pawn shop maybe you can do a Trade + Cash on it...have any old gold jewelry you're not wearing anymore?

    Scrap Gold is a hot market item right now.

    The shame is I bet they bought the gun for $450-500 mark. Makes you wonder if the previous owner knew what they had.

    Good looking gun. Definetly haggle with the pawn shop. They ripped off whoever they bought it from and you should never pay full sticker price at a pawn shop. They will start with a rediculously high price because either a novice or moron will pay it off the bat or a savy consumer will come in and haggle their price down to what it is really worth.

    Since it is a pawn shop low ball them as they probably don't have much in it at all.

    700.00 to 750.00 would be a good deal. It looks like somebody's been inside the gun...(beavertail, hammer)...It's not a series 70 (the S/N) so that's why the lower price I'd be inclined to offer....

    That is how the GCTs come/came, the pistol appears to be stock. The new blue models have a new beavertail GS, the stainless models still use the older ducktail GS.
