Bought a nice early Trooper in 357 Mag today that I would rate at 98% with wide hammer and target grips. Serial number is 346xx, I suspect that it was made in the early 60's. While it has been fired its in beautiful condition with perfect blueing. Action is butter smooth and reminds me of the early Pythons (same action I have been told). No box or papers but the price was $300.00 which I thought was a real deal for Northern Illinois. I'll pick it up on Friday and have it at the range on Saturday..
