    Lawman MK3 2" purchase

    Just purchased a Lawman MK3 2" in EXCELLENT condition from original owner for $300, said he paid 300 for it new and shot less than half a box through this gun and it looks that way. The serial number is 041xxU anyone have info on year of manufacture and or approximate value, I've looked on the web at the various resources and they are very confusing.

    I would say it was made in 1981. Nice score. Owner was happy with the price, so you should be too.

    Personally, I think you should be brought up on felony charges for what you paid for that revolver! That's outright theft and you did well...more than well. You're both happy and that's all that matters.

    Now...over twenty years ago I bought a like new Python snubby for $300...but that was long before their prices skyrocketed, though Pythons have never been inexpensive. I purchased it from my brother...I guess maybe that makes me a bad brother but I paid him what he wanted for it.

    enjoy one of the best kept revolver secrets,and another less than successful Colt marketed product. With minimal tuning, by adding Wolff springs and a Tyler t grip this becomes a better revolver than the more popular S&W 19/66. Why? It is more the size of an L frame Smith , but the size of a Smith K frame. Fixed sights to not snag, more compact and can withstand magnum ammo better. Now that yo have one shoot it, enjoy it and know that it will do anything a revolver needs to do, . For self defense Buffalo Bore 158 lhp plus p 38s leaves the 2 1/4 inch lawman barrel at around 1050 fps , out performing most magnum ammo and is low noise , blast and recoil.

    Great buy! The least expensive I have seen lately was 500, and that was two years ago.

    Lawman67, judging from your comments you are a real fan of the Colt Lawman MK III ?? Anything to the supposed "brittleness" of the hammer; that is reported, (internet expertise), to cause breakage with dry-fire ??

    I don't dryfire mine , but shoot a 4incher , a 4 inch OP Mark 3 and a 2 inch Mark3 ,never had a problem. I think it is an urban legend.
