Reduced down to $370 from approx. $420. Seems to be in about 90-95% condition with great bluing and the Pachmyer-style Colt grips. Seems like a good price, but I'm fairly ignorant about Colt revolvers. What sayeth the experts?

I paid $365 for this one last year. I was pleased with the deal too.

That's a GREAT price on a .22 Mark III.
These are one of the finest .22LR DA revolvers ever made, and are one of the best platforms to learn double action shooting with.

The massive frame and cylinder offer a steady hold, and the heavy cylinder tends to rotate to the next chamber easily once started.

Accuracy is almost always excellent, and the gun itself was a step above competitors guns in quality, fit, and finish.

The only "watch-out" is to NOT dry fire the Mark III guns, .22LR or center fire.
There is a possibility that the firing pin "might" break, and this is a factory repair ONLY.

Other than that, the Trooper Mark III is an absolute TANK, and if any .22 pistol was ever over built, this is it.
