The O5870NM Colt Gold Cup in 45 acp has a 5" barrel, a magazine capacity of either 7 or 8 and of course one still goes in the chamber for a +1, it has a carbon steel blued slide and receiver so it is fairly uniform in look, it has a spurred hammer (the other Gold Cup model does not), 3 hole aluminum trigger system, wrap around grip, and a lowered and flared ejection port. This gun is a single action and has an approximate weight of 36.5 - 37oz with no ammo, and a full or overall lenght of 8.5".
The Colt Gold Cup is known as the finest shooting semi-automatic in the world, and is the standard for competitive guns.

Colt Gold Cup pistols have been used to compete in local club matches through the National Matches at Camp Perry.
