NICE... I'm with Coltlondon, what did it cost you??? I picked up a NIB example just like it last week but in .22 Magnum. I paid $950 for mine.

It was $650. More than what I wanted to pay but...as I learned a long time ago...it is hard to "over pay" when the condition is right. This revolver was very very clean and came with original box, manual, plastic bag and desiccant sheet. Very nice example of a 1979/80 revolver.My only problem is 22lr ammo is tight in SE PA and I can't shoot it with reckless abandon!

VERY nice!

One of my regrets is trading my LNIB 6" Trooper .22 for a Government .380 in the 1980s. Shoulda just bought the .380.

Ouch, that hurts!!! At that time, who would have ever guessed that Colt revolver prices would rise so much!

Why does that hurt? The values for both are still very similar today if in like condition..........
What hurts is that the poster wishes that he bought the 380 which implies that he would have kept the Trooper as well. He would have both today....

Hey Seabee....My Dad was Navy, WW II Pacific Theatre, and My Son currently is a Seabee, about to be deployed.
Take a sabattical to SW Florida this winter, bring the Trooper 22 and contact Me; We'll go to the local range, and I'll supply all the 22 LR ammo that You can tolerate. :cool:
