Buddy called me about a Gold Cup in the local pawn shop. Weapon has a deep blue finish and a Bomar rib that is the length of the slide. Said it is in pretty good shape. They are asking 525.00 for it

If it's as good as he says, I'd definitely pursue the purchase. But first, of course, is a hands on careful inspection. The Bomar rib could indicate a bullseye set up. Might have a trigger job as well. Good luck. Post some photos if you buy it.

A lot of price difference/value between an original "National Match" vs the much later 70 series labeled "Gold Cup"
Also from my experience an all original will better appreciate than a modified one ..seldom does customization ..unless done by VERY noted shop/individual make most mods or add ons a deduct from value

Already have a Colt series 70. Unlike a lot of folks.I don't need or want more than one of them. I am not big on the cosmetic things like ball cuts, etc. Just not my taste, to me it's just a tool.
And it is a .45

I'd say it's worth taking a look at. That being said, in my hobby of collecting old cars I have had many where the owner stated "have to see it to believe it", and when I actually took the trip to see thing thing, they were right in that I had to see the thing to believe how over priced the thing was for it's condition.
