Are you sure there is not a letter in that serial number? Like at the end?
I'm aware of shiny nickel troopers, but not stainless.


There is a word sweeter than mother, home or heaven--
That word is Liberty.
The Trooper Mark III was never made in stainless.

Colt did offer the electroless nickel finish, both as "Electroless Nickel", and as "ColtGuard".

This is a satin finish which, being nickel, has a distinctive "yellow" cast.
I'll check in the am - is locked in the safe at my shop. es
Ser # 17347U (I sure need bifocals!). Thanks
