I have an 8" blued Trooper MkIII in .22 LR. I purchased it almost 40 years ago.
I think Colt even made a few Electroless nickel AR15’s in that time period.
Could be mistaken.
I like long barrels, I can't deny.
bac103. You the man on this topic.
I had an E Nickel Python from 1981.
Very nice score I’ve always thought the trooper Had much better looking lines than the python.
We need to have a Joker pistol thread .
The Trooper Mark III was the first Colt revolver to have the transfer bar. Debuted in 1969
Now that’s a fine looking hawglaig!
Nice hog leg,
Looks brand new. Enjoy.
My Dad had an 8" Colt Python in .38 special. How rare or desirable were these? Can't remember if it was E Nickel or stainless.
The Python Target does ok, Norton.
Here’s a pristine one in the box for mid $4,000’s. Not sure what it will bring, but bids are near $3,000 already. Why sellers include in BIN price makes no sense to me, but there you have it.
They certainly aren’t the most valuable of Pythons, but not bad. I would guess your dad’s to be E nickel.
What models do you feel are the most sought after?
If Pinocchio had a gun... That thing has quite a long nose!
J/K, that is a very cool find!
As far as Pythons are concerned?
There’s a few limited edition models that have done well. I’m thinking the Combat Python is the most valuable. It was a Lew Horton exclusive from the late 80’s. 3” barrel and less than 500 built.
They generally bringing over $15,000 these days. A used model brought $16,100 in a recent online auction.
Unfired, the sky is the limit.
Wow. I thought maybe those marked by police dept's or federal/state agencies might be the most valuable.
Had the Trooper to the range. 357 mags feel like 38 SPL
Super action on this.
Eh, sometimes that stuff can actually detract.
Nice colt. That pistol brings back memories of my Mark V.
I’m an idiot for trading it.
