Title: Looking for a Colt 1911 Gold Cup Trophy Replica
Post by: thegreywizard on January 27, 2020, 04:12:59 PM
I am wanting to do a very high quality reproduction of a movie prop gun.

The gun I’m looking for a high quality, metal replica of is, a Colt 1911 Gold Cup Trophy.

I think the closest thing to what I'm trying to replicate is the Umarex Colt Commander:

Seems to be almost identical to the Colt 1911 Gold Cup Trophy:

Does anyone know of a more accurate replica to the Colt 1911 Gold Cup Trophy than the Umarex Colt Commander?

Is there a Colt Commander that comes in stainless instead of black?

Thanks.

In a word, no. They look so good now, that criminals are arming themselves with them, and holding up unarmed citizens who can't tell they aren't the real thing.

Ok I guess I'm confused by the response?

I've been told there are like 8 other companies with a different variation of this Colt Commander.

How do I find what other companies would sell this same Colt Commander, but just in silver?

What else can I search for besides Colt Commander?

I'd really like to find the Colt Gold Cup Trophy over the Colt Commander replica if possible, but worse case the Cold Commander is almost identical in features.

Thank you!

UMAREX (and its associated companies) makes almost all of the replica CO2 guns. Start here: https://www.umarexusa.com/pistols

Hmm ok thanks for that info.

After close inspection, the Colt Commander still seems to be the closest replica to the Colt Gold Trophy. 

But the Colt Commander only seems to come in black.  Perhaps I'll just have it sand blasted before having it refinished.

Thanks.
