    New Members Introduction
    Hi all! I'm Derry and a relatively new Colt Revolver owner. I have managed to pick up a few recently starting with a nice Metropolitan Mk III then followed by a nice Trooper Mk III. I'm also newly retired. I took a trip south to get away for a couple weeks from the cold in Northern Indiana...
  2. New to me 1976 Trooper MkIII.

    Colt Revolvers
    Hello. Just got it! It is just such a pain to get modern firearms in France; months of paperwork... So it had to be a Colt of course. This Trooper is awesome. Timing is perfect and it looks almost like new. I also got a Lyman 358439 155gr mold, the HP version of the famous 173gr 358429, which...
  3. Unfired Nickled Colt Trooper .357 magnum Mk3 value?

    Colt Revolvers
    Hi guys, I am looking into purchasing an unfired Colt trooper Mk3 nickle 6" in .357 for $700. Does that sound fair? I used to have a 98% 1953 Trooper that I sold years back and regret. What should I look for to tell if this gun is really unfired? What would the gun be worth?

    Colt Revolvers
    I have been very fortunate (at least in my opinion) lately, as I have encountered several beautiful examples of Colt revolvers that have all been in my price range!

  7. Colt Trooper help

    Colt Revolvers
    (This is also on The High Road). I just bought a Colt Trooper made in 1958, and had a few questions. The Colt emblem looked a little washed out, so I wanted to know if anyone could tell if it was refinished. Let me know if you want any more pictures. My camera isn't very good, but I suppose I...

    Colt Revolvers
    I just joined here 2 weeks ago when I was offered a Python by a friend of a friend who needed some quick cash. I'm very happy with the Python and have been loading some 38 Spc and 357 Mag loads to shoot at the range this weekend. So this morning my wife is expecting her father to stop by and...

    Colt Revolvers
    I'm fairly new to Colt revolvers, but would like to pick up a used Trooper 357 mag in nickel with 6" barrel. What's a typical price I should expect to pay? Don't need pristine finish.

  14. Help! Got my Trooper delivered and now the finish is coming off

    Colt Revolvers
    Hi! Today, my 10 day waiting period was finally over and I picked up my Colt Trooper .357 Magnum. It is a 1966. It was suppose to be never been shot. I purchased a cleaning set and started to lubricate it. The barrel was super clean, but the cylinder was actually pretty dirty. I put some...
