Just got my Trooper MK III back from Colt after sending it in for refinishing. They also adjusted the timing. I think they did a great job. Top pic is now, bottom before. Sorry that the picture doesn't do the refinishing job justice.
Did you have a timing problem? What exactly did they do, do you know?
I picked up a six-incher a couple weeks back, just got a white outline rear blade installed yesterday, dumped the unworkable (for me /forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif ) factory grips in favor of Pachmayrs, and I'm building up to shooting the thing.
Checked timing & carryup before I bought it, had no problems as far as I can determine.Gun's obviously been used a bit, but everything's still tight on it. Hand looks good, ratchet looks good, cylinder locks up well before the hammer reaches full-cock on a slow carryup check.
What was yours doing?
I shot it a couple of times before I sent it back to Colt and it seemed fine. The work order just says they did the refinish and adjusted the timing, not other details. I haven't had a chance to shoot it yet, but hope to this week.
I think they do the timing check/adjustment as a matter of course. I just got my Python back from being renickeled, and the invoice said they adjusted the timing. Doesn't seem any different from before, but what do I know? /forums/images/graemlins/smirk.gif
