FWIW I have worked on and built quite a few 1911 guns (custom and factory) and I have yet to see a Gold Cup that was built with finer tolerances than any other Colt 1911. You may get a slighter lighter trigger pull but that's about all (with creep and mush). The original National Match Colts WERE hand fitted to very fine tolerances but that was over 80 years ago. They are worth a great deal of money today. Gold Cups of today are mainly just marketing for people who cannot tell the difference. They are perfectly good guns but are also way overpriced for what they are. Any brand of gun that will be used for defensive use REALLY needs to be gone through by a knowledgeable smith if you want absolute reliability.
