Just Purchased New Gold Cup Trophy SS

Well, after debating on which 1911 to buy I purchased several, one of them being a Colt Gold Cup Trophy SS. I disassembled it and cleaned it in preparation of going to the range tomorrow and will post my results.

Can't wait for the range to open tomorrow... I feel like those shoppers in the Mervyn's commercials where it's midnight (or some un-godly hour) and they are looking in the store windows chanting "open, open, open".

I'm already thinking that I'd like another Colt but just can't decide which one.

I'm getting an ambi-safety and perhaps a S&A magwell like I got on my Springfield V16 Longslide and 9mm loaded.

Any other suggestions that I may want to consider for the Gold Cup?

Congrats on the Gold Cup. I also checked out your range report. Sounds to me like you are satisfied with your purchase. The only thing I changed on mine was the grips. It gave the gun a slimmer profile and improved my grip thus eliminating the need for a larger grip safety. I absolutely refuse to mess with the internals on a gun that is performing flawlessly. Just my 2 cents worth.
