Revolvers, Colt Trooper Mk III

I recently wrote about how I like wheel guns, This is another one of my favorites. I have had it a little while. It originally belonged to a retired State Trooper but I acquired in a trade from my buddy Stephen (I traded him season one and two of American Idol on DVD)   It is Colt Trooper, Mk III,  .357 Mag.  The action is super smooth and the gun handles very nice. I have always been partial to S&W but this is one sweet shooting gun. You don't see these for sale much any more.

    My first duty weapon was the blue steel Colt Trooper MKIII.
    Absolutely the best action out of the box.
    Fantastic wheel gun. I'm jealous!

  3. Is there any difference between this and a python? I can't see much of a difference between the two.

    1. The main difference was the Python has a under barrel lug which runs the full length of the barrel along with the rib on top. Plus the Python costs more if you can find them.

  7. I could imagine Stephen taking the Idol DVDs - they make GREAT targets.

    1. Rev. Paul, I guess so, but Stephen always says, "I didn't miss the round went through the hole"

  8. No doubt the DVD's are used in training exercises to simulate the stress of combat.
