Colt's Gold Cup National Match 1911

Looking for a new handgun with a bit of a nostalgia feel to it? Colt has you covered with the Gold Cup National Match Series 1911.

You don't have to look far to see that the craze for Model 1911 handguns isn't going to subside anytime soon. Manufacturers have also recognized this and have responded accordingly, giving you a head-spinning amount of options if you're looking to start or expand your 1911 collection.

Colt has re-energized it's Gold Cup Series of handguns with the National Match edition, which sports old-school style complete with cutting-edge advancements for an unparalleled shooting experience.

Now, I'm a revolver guy through-and-through ... there's just something special about the simplicity and beef of a large-framed wheel gun. But with that said, Colt's Gold Cup National Match feels so good in the hand and on the hip that not adding one to my collection would be a gross injustice.

Check out this video short I filmed at SHOT Show 2015 with one of Colt's engineers, who delivered the intricacies of what makes this handgun so special.
