A friend has asked me to help him sell a Colt 1911. It is somewhat odd and I am not sure of it's value. What can I seriously expect to get out of this gun?

Series 70 Gold Cup National Match - Blued - 99%

The gun is gorgeous. The grips are wood with a target flange for the thumb.

Nothing "odd" about 70 Series GCs.  I own two right now.  Did own three, but gave one away.  Should go for close to $1000 or so.  I have one that's only had one mag fired through it; has original box, papers, etc.

Well thats a pretty nice one to have....I'd keep it if it was mine.  My dad used to have one like that, sold it years ago and still regrets it..

That being said, I have not seen a used gold cup but I can't imagine that it would be less than $1,000.  Somebody check me on this.

And since we are asking, is $650 a good price for a 1950 Gov't Model in the same condition?

Try this sight (http://www.club1911.com) or (http://www.sightm1911.com) I saw them at a gun show $1000.00 to $1500.00. They were new in box.

NIB is close to $1500. I see them normally for $1150-$1250. $1000 is a price to move it. Most Colt people wouldn't turn that down if offered the chance.
