Colt pre Trooper .357, made in 1961 (early one). blued. +90%+ condition, wood grips w/ medallions are perfect. ser # 2992X - 6" barrel, target sights. Perfect bore. Non-shrouded ejector rod.

$ 850.00 OBO plus $15.00 shipping. Hard to improve on this one. A real collectible.

Interesting, quality handgun trades considered.

The Trooper was targeted at the entry-level and Law enforcement service-level segment of the firearms market while the highly polished and expensive 357 model revolver was intended to be their premium offering. After the introduction of the more expensive Python in 1955, Colt discontinued the basic .38 Special Trooper in 1961, and to did away with the .357 moniker, so they renamed it Trooper. The new offering retained the .357 magnum chambering and frame-mounted firing pin.
