Warranty 3-day inspection Optics Mount Magazine Slides Muzzle Device Overall Length 9. My personal opinion is the older Colts are way overpriced and not worth what they're asking. I have came across pretty much the same info. Kids selling off his guns for dirt. Was considering it next to Rugers, Smiths, Dan Wessons, and Tauruses, and the Trooper seems like the most slick to cock without moving your hand more than needed. In fact the general condition of this weapon was quite good. The Colt is capable of extremely difficult shots.
Finally traced this problem to a too-tight barrel-cylinder gap. He asked why and I told him that he was atleast 1k over priced. I did not fire these groups in one day, nor one month or even a single year but over a period of many months. Replaced the mainspring with a Trapper. The front sight was composed of a large ramp base with a grooved ramp sight blade. They don't hold much interest.
This last detail is not to be taken for granted, and it's indicative of the extra time put into the construction of this revolver. I donated it to a friend who wanted to learn Colt innards. The Seller is required to give the Buyer a minimum of three days to inspect any firearm sold through GunAuction. As a result, more stress and shock was transferred to the Colt action. In 1969 Colt discontinued all the older mid-size frame guns except the Python.
Hawaii - 10 round maximum for all handgun magazines. He asked why and I told him that he was atleast 1k over priced. But the Trooper is about drawing the gun, centering the target, and giving the target or threat a heavy blow that stops the action immediately. Payment: Full payment is required within 14 days. Colt retained the Trooper design, but introduced a number of cosmetics modifications.
Within a year or so, the front of the leaf was changed to an easier to produce squared off profile. The single-action proved nearly as heavy as the double-action, which is unique in our test experience 12. Smith and Wesson would go through similar generations. Double-action trigger pull was very heavy 15. I have owned and shot a bunch of them over the years, and would pick one in a heartbeat over many of the competitors. Figured if I could learn anything with that gun, I'd really learn it. It did have a timing problem: sometimes the cylinder would not rotate wwhen shooting single action.
If you subject your pistol to this type of pounding on a regular basis, be prepared for a major overhaul. So if anyone is interested in a way over priced trooper I know where to find one because they still have it and will have it for a long long time. The chambers in the cylinder of the small caliber model were recessed, so that the protruding rim of the cartridge case engaged in this. About like a mill-run Smith 19 or 66. For collectors you can also find some interesting Mark I Colt.
For deposits on the front of the cylinder and around the forcing cone, I use patches cut from Birchwood Casey's Lead Remover and Polishing Cloth. During the 1960s and 1970s several revolver manufacturers adopted the transfer bar ignition system. One of the new models was the Trooper revolver, which was manufactured from 1953 to 1967. Other wise looks very nice and cool. Previous shop owner, who is continuing to run the place for the new owner until he moves to Oklahoma, says oh the owner turn down the offer. You're not the high Bidder until you've been notified by email that you are. I'm not really a colt guy, anyway.
I too would like to find larger grips for it as my hands are large. Following Colt practice of the time, all Trooper revolver grips had Silver Colt medallions, Gold being reserved for the Python. So there is a gun store by me that wants 1750 for a colt trooper. This website contains many older reviews. Nice gun, but not really something I was in the market for. These were the 357 Model and the Trooper. That sounds like a very good buy.
