Colt Trooper MK III 357 Magnum

Read Gun Tests Rating and Recommendation

The Trooper MK III looked good and felt good in the hand, but this particular revolver had been fired with hot loads and was in need of servicing to get it back in shape. This is one of the problems with buying used, of course, so watch out for this.

The Model 19-4 had a wider, larger grip than the Trooper MK III shown here.
The cylinder was countersunk so cartridge bases were flush with the outside edge of the cylinder.
Our initial check indicated the trooper was tight and in good condition.
Notice the star-shaped impression from the ratchet and the bases of cartridges; this indicates many high-pressure loads were fired in this trooper. This doesn’t mean we’d completely pass on it, but it is an area to look for when you go shopping for your own.
