That's a great looking gun, and the first round butt version I've seen. I have several MkIIIs, but they're all square butt versions. Were both versions made at the same time?

Very nice!

NIB is always the best way to buy a revolver. Then you can agonize over shooting it or not shooting it.

Good luck with it.

I'm not sure about the grip frame? My Trooper Mark III was made around 1980 or 1981? I down't own a square butt version of the Trooper Mark III, to enable me to compare with mine. It's possible, that only the grips themselves were changed to the round butt style-but, then, leaving the grip frame the same as for the square butt model Mark III's?

I'm appreciating the nice comments coming in complimenting my Trooper Mark III!

The only J frames with a "round butt" are the 2" Lawmen. All other J frames are square butt. Those stocks are simply the "later" version Mk III target stocks with tapered/rounded wood. /forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif

Thanks for the info about the stocks. I almost bought a new pair of the round butt stocks for $10, but didn't because I thought they wouldn't fit my gun. Dang!
