    Gun Show Find - 1980 Trooper MkIII 4 inch 22LR

    Had a great day with a gun buddy visiting our local gun show. He walked away with a nice rifle and I finally found a Trooper Mark III in a barrel length different from my snakes (and not a 357). Most importantly, I've wanted a Trooper Mark III to remind me of my Dad's '70's 6 inch 357. Unfortunately, he sold it before he moved stateside so we couldn't keep it in the family. I'm sure he's looking down now and smiling! Can't wait to take it to the range tomorrow!

    This is my first Mark III so I was surprised to see that the hammer is not blued or in white but is color case hardened. A Google search confirmed a post by our resident expert, dfariswheel, that Colt used color cased hardened hammers on the Mark III models. It adds a nice touch!

    I have both a bright nickel and electroless nickel Mark III revolvers. The bright nickel piece has polished blue hammer and trigger and the e-nickel examples have matching e-nickel hammers and triggers.
