    I do have to admit, that the pre-Python Colt DA revolvers do seriously lack in style forward of the receiver. The barrels look like a piece of freakin' water pipe.

    Guess I'm one of those who just like plain old Troopers...

    Have had a four Pythons and two Diamondbacks but just never cared for them very much. Found a friend a 1954 Trooper .22 and it was so nice I asked he let me know when he was going to sell it...which happened about two years ago.

    Was so happy with the way it shot I found a Trooper .357 to match...

    .357..

    .22...which now wears a set of 50s vintage fully checkered Target stocks...

    Fits my feelings overall on the Python barrel issue. I just wouldn't be interested in one at pretty much any price. But it should shoot just fine.

    Well, I have a couple of them that I would sell. No boxes as I recall, but all in very good to excellent condition.

    I thought about it but it's because of the gap that stopped me from doing it myself. I was thinking I could fabricate a wedge of 4140, but It would still show up.

    If you watch the GunBroker auctions, the Troopers in .22 come up for sale quite often usually in the $700-950 area depending on condition. The one I have was $650 I believe and that was 8-10 years ago...
