I must be brain dead but I can't find this serial# in the ranges given in my R.L.Wilson book. There is this 98% condition nickel Trooper that is calling my name. It is very, very nice. Very faint cylinder ring...grips perfect..hardly looks fired. The serial# is 4218L. Can someone help me with the DOB.

Thanks in advance!

IMHO, that sounds a little high, should be more in the $375 area, even for a nickel one, but if you like it, gotta have it, buy it, cause going prices of Colts will catch up real soon, trust me.
On second thought, I've never let $50 stand in my way of a piece I really wanted.

As Diamondback said,prices of Colts will catch up real quickly. Reminds me of what I tell friends(& wife!)when they ask what I paid for a gun; "I have never paid TOO MUCH for a gun,just bought a few TOO SOON!" Bud

BrainOnSigs,

I bought a 6" Trooper in Dec`03 for $300. It had a faint turn line, a 1/4" scratch on the left side of the barrel, and slight wear at the muzzle. It had not been fired very much.

It was made in `70,

John

If there are no letters with that serial number, it was made in 1965.
