Great deal on a scarcely seen revolver, in my opinion. Some info can be found here Trooper
Would love to see pictures of your new accusation.
Hi Guys. I picked up a 1955 Trooper in 22lr the other day from the original owners daughter in law. It's in decent shape, finish wise, probably 85% with some bluing loss at the muzzle and the front edges of the cylinder. The grips are original service stocks in very good condition and are number matched to the revolver. Mechanically this revolver is perfect and one of the finest shooters I've had the pleasure to fire. I originally bought the gun to re-sell but I'm a sucker for old Colt revolvers and this thing is really sweet. I can't find much info on the first generation Troopers in 22lr other than they all came with 4" barrels. Does anyone know how many of these were produced in 22lr or what they are going for these days? I paid $400 for this one and she gave me 200 rounds of ammo, cleaning kit and a holster to go with it.
I'd love to see a pic. You don't see a lot of the early .22 troopers. Depending upon condition you likely got a great deal. If you want to sell it in the end there will likely be a number of folks interested!

The production figure I have seen most often repeated is 3,000 .22 Troopers.
$400 is a steal.
I wish I would fall into a $400 .22 Trooper deal like that!!!!!!
Somewhere long ago I read that there were 2200 Colt Trooper .22's made.
I can no longer remember where I read it, nor can I be sure of the number.
