I have only owned Colt double action revolvers for a little under 10 years now.

I will never forget the first time I picked up my first Colt (it was an OP) and I said to myself "holy ****, this is the smoothest action I have ever felt".

Bought it on the spot and bought quite a few old Colts since then.

I might get flamed for this but even the newer actions, like the Trooper MKIII in .357 magnum, when I put in the reduced power springs, are extremely smooth to me. I don't know why those are so smooth but they are.

I remembered dfariswheel and other veteran members talking about the newer actions so I was a bit reluctant to purchase the MK III's but I took the plunge on a couple of good deals over the internet and was VERY surprised at how smooth their actions are when the reduced power springs were installed.

Not that the veteran members were downplaying the newer actions much but I just didn't know how they would feel.

Like I said, I really don't know why they are so smooth but they are.
