There's a gorgeous Talo National Match Gold Cup Colt at the local funstore.  I had never really heard anything about Talo.  I can say that it's really pretty.  They want $1400.  Not sure I want it, but it did pique my interest.

I'd be interested to know too.

they have a web site.

from what i gather from their web site is that they do cusomizining on the stock guns.  But IIRC, the engraving isnt mechanical, its chemical.  Its looks nice, but not sure how well it will go up against old style engraving.

If it's not NIB thats quite high IMHO, I paid $700.00 for this one used but fired very VERY little. They are nice but not really collector items, I just liked this one because it had the horse and Colt in gold inlay.

Cool, thanks.  I'm not much of a collector, so I wasn't looking at it as an investment.  Other than looking prettier than standard do they perform better or is it all show and no go?  I won't pay a lot more just for looks.

It's mostly just cosmetic, since I've never had an issue shooting it I've got no complaints, shoots fine, locks up fine, I'd imagine that one would check out the function/lockup like any other Colt. some are great, some are so so. It's the only Talo I own and if it wasn't the Colt logo/horsie one I'd have probably passed. As it is, I don't regret the purchase.

Cool - thanks bro.  They're stuff is definitely purty.  If it's just a bit more, I think I'd go for it but I won't pay a whole lot more just for looks.  Looks are important to me, but not THAT important .

most talo editions are runs of 200 guns.  the best looking one i've seen so far is the dragon
