    trooper mark 3, value

    i have an oppurtunity to buy a 4" blue trooper mark-3 in numbered box, with what i assume is all paperwork.

    test target numbered to pistol, dated april 1970, warranty card, colt rust paper, colt logo plastic, shelf tag, ect

    the gun is very close to perfect very slight drag line on cylinder silver logo.

    the gun belongs to a old friends widow, and i want to be as fair as possible,

    i am more fluent in smith than colt, and know there is a great deal of value in the box and paperwork. and that the blue book does not always reflect true collector interest and market value

    what would be a fair retail on this gun?

    i have a 6" shooter that i have owned for years and i have enjoyed it very much but it is definatly not a safe queen

    Based on your description and what I have seen them sell for I would guess between $600/$750.There are others on the forum that could give a more realistic number mine is strictly a SWAG.If you do get it pictures will be required so that we may drool.Welcome to the forum by the way.

    Well now that is a nice'un! Funny thing... this afternoon an old friend stopped by my place and dropped off a nice Trooper III in .22lr/4" Blued and a box of Win Super-X, and proceded to tell me to take it to the ranger, if I like it ~~ It could be mine for what he paid for it 10yrs ago... 350.00! I told him " Eff the range, It Is Mine!

    It is my first Colt since Iwas in the Army (and dat twernt really mine, Ya'know? Hehe

    Happy Days and congrats to you Sir!
