Ed Masaki Bullseye Gold Cup

Post by furele on 12/31/2018, 6:02 pm

I was wondering if there is someone on this site to help me price a Colt Gold Cup 80 Series Bullseye Pistol customized by Ed Masaki. As I get older in age I find it harder and harder to compete and my children have no interest in the sport. I know Ed frequents this site and is quite popular here. The pistol is in great shape and I could send pics if I could figure out what to ask for this beautiful pistol. I also have 3 other Bullseye guns and one of Ed's Bullseye Boxes.

Help Please.

Are you located in HI or on the mainland?

Either way, I highly recommend that you take some time to clean the gun spotlessly (q-tips, blue towels, etc.)

Get all the fingerprints off and take very good pictures. Lots, from all angles especially wear areas people are going to want to see such as the crown, bore, upper and lower lugs, wear patterns on the slide rails, etc. Test targets are a big plus.

With all that, I think folks on the forum will be able to give you a fair and well-informed range of values.

find an outside, hopefully shady spot on a bright day, location to take pics, 
use a neutral background
no flash, 

indoors near a window will work,  but usually not as well, 

basic pics, 

one profile , each side, 
front (muzzle)
grips 
markings on slide and frame
mag well
trigger, and trigger guard
rear of frame
sights, 
and a top shot 

then add pics of it taken down, 
feed ramp, 
top of frame
rails
hammer (cocked)
barrel hood, 
muzzle (for wear at the bushing)
bushing 
inside of slide,  and inside rear of slide, 


and yes, you may get asked for more, 

hope this helps
