But I really wasn't happy with my newly purchased Trooper Mk III. It wasn't as nice as I first thought. Solid shooter but not collectible quality.



Freckling and some scratches that I didn't notice in the light of the gun shop.

Had the chance to trade it and I made the deal.

Straight across for this.

It's no safe queen but I think I got the better end of the deal with the prices they are bringing now.

Of course that could all change if the start making these rifles again.

Well I learned something, those scouts are worth more than I thought.
They don't do anything for me, but at least I know their relative value for whatever that may be worth in the future.

Looks like you came out a little ahead moneywise, if nothing else.

Awwwwwwww man........ hurry up and go and get your Trooper back. At least your Trooper had a trigger.

There's nothin wrong with returning a revolver to general circulation if it ain't what you are really after.
And swappin' out for a cool military survival piece is better either way.
You can scrounge up anohter Trooper that meets your criteria, and still be ahead. But by all means, get the revolver thing figured out before those go nutzo like some of the others.

I'd of kept the Trooper, but I'm glad you are happy with the deal. Life is short and you are dead a long time. That you are happy with the deal is what counts.

From the way this thread reads, if you traded a fairly rough 500 gun for a nice 850-900 gun, I think we could only say you crazy like a FOX imo!!! Trades like that rarely come up...
