Classic Colt Trooper .22

Here is a NIB(Unfired)example of a rare classic 1959 4" Colt Trooper .22 LR revolver. Although not shown, I have the mint box, papers, and the shipper box that originally came with this gun!:

That is a great looking revolver! I am not sure that I could resist firing it, I bet that it is a sweet shooter. Thanks for the pics!

Such a beautiful gun. I would have a hard time not taking it to the range at least once... but then there goes the "NIB unfired" value. I do understand why just owning it may be enough.

Both of your Colt revolvers are great guns indeed! I have a like new 4" Colt Trooper MK III .22 LR and a NIB 6" Colt Diamondback. Your Trooper MK III .22 Mag. is a rare gun!

Nice. I had a colt trooper 1970s style in 6 inch electroless nickel and sold it sad I did. Now they are worth quite a bit.

The nice thing about these early pre Mark III Trooper .22 revolvers is that they have the same action as the Colt Model 3-5-7. the Officers Models, the official police, and the Python. It has been estimated that only about 2,200 of these early Trooper .22's like mine were made! Since mine came with the optional target hammer, and the fully checkered target stocks makes this Trooper .22 even rarer. The temptation will always be there with me desiring to shoot this gun-but, it's such a pretty specimen to do this and just ruin it's collectibility!

Yes, the electroless nickal Trooper MK III's were very nice and are now very valuable! I made a mistake in passing up a NIB 4" electrless nickel Trooper MK III .22 LR revolver in the late 1990's!

ptblank, that is nice and you got a great gun , but my mother inherated one just like that with a 6" barrel in .22 and has the .38spl to match it also and they are consective serial #.

my gramps loved colts so when he died mom got all his collection including a huge fort knox safe to put them in. when mom goes they are mine but they are shooters not like yours , i just wish they were nib's but the shooters are nice too.

i would like to take them out and shoot them but mom said no, oh well i still have my 3 rugers so i shoot them instead and more fun too.

i do know what that's worth right now or should i say what their asking for one thats a shooter not a nib. some of the readers here would flinch if they knew the price.

That is a beautiful shooter. I do love Colts. My problem is that I can't have an unfired gun. If I get one, I change it's status as soon as possible. But, that is my sickness I guess. I just like to shoot 'em all. But, back to yours. Congratulations on the acquisition. That is a real find.
