A hint: 1973.
But you didn't try the second reference http://www.coltforum.com/forums/colt-revolvers/12138-da-dates-manufacture-thru-1985-a.htmlI tried the site proofhouse but couldn't find a match:
I have found a Trooper Mk III for sale serial no : 60806L
Can anyone help??
Bought my first one in 1978, nickle, 357 with 4" tube. Shot like a champ with nary an issue. Unfortunately as an E-3 stationed in SoCal with a wife and infant, bills came first and I sold that first one. About 3 years ago I found the same gun only blued this time, new in the box. Until I got the second one I never realized how much I'd been missing the first. In fact I'm on the lookout now for a 6" model and possibly a 4" and 6" in .22lr. They really are nice guns.So, now tell me guys, I've heard wonderful things about this model.... but what do you guys say about it?
Welcome to the forum. It shows in Proofhouse as 1978. Look at MkIII ...Hello, new member here. I see the thread is a little older one but I will try anyway. I have a Colt Trooper MK III and cannot determine when it was made. I have tried Proofhouse and the other link referenced but cannot locate it. Mid 70's perhaps?

Thanx All .....
