Just curious... Let's say you take a gunbroker Colt 70s Gold Cup National Match at $1,500-$2k+ Where does that 1911 match up to today's price point? My guess is lower since a great value seems to be hard to come by with the power of the internet and owning those Colts may be more for the history or more for sending to a custom shop on down the road? Seems like with today's markets and etc -- a $1,500--$2k auction 1911 isn't going to compare to a $3k Ed Brown, Les. etc. Those kinds of values are long gone...heh But maybe it does?! Most reviews I read, espeically by authors who are followed by the masses, all talk about how the accuracy of those 70s Gold Cup NM will not be beat... obviously that only goes so far -- but still pretty cool.
