A Colt Trooper MKIII. Gave it to my dad on his retirement as a Chief LEO in 1981. in .357 mag, 4" blue, adjustable rear sight, 6 shots. Pictured with some beater grips. Originals in box.



A Trooper MKIII in .22 LR. Given to my dad by the officers of the deptartment on his retirement in 1981 and so marked. Much the same as the other gun. Wish I had the .22 mag to complet the set.



A Colt Cobra in .38 spl. Lotta mileage on it, but not fired much.

Here is my nickel plated Colt Python 6" barrel hogleg. My first handgun I ever used on patrol back in the early 80's. I was also awarded top shot while in the police academy using it.

Yes it's 41 cal. I have a few rounds for it and everything looks to be in great shape. My dad shot it a few years ago but I have read the double action can break so I'm not going to risk it.
Yep, the early DA Colts were a bit frail. I had one of the 1878 DA Frontier .45s for a while. Front half looked like a SAA model and the back half like the Thunder or Lightning models. It appeared to have all the parts in it, but never could get it work right. It may have just worn out. All the parts looked kinda frail. Finally gave up on it.

Only gave a local a Raven .25 for it, but had a gun trader give me a new Mini-14 for it. Worked for me at the time.

Havasu very nice looking pistol.

Pancho wow a Mini 14 would be a good deal. I would love to get one.
That was some years back. I pick up Miniis in swaps at the gunshows pretty often. Got one about a year ago in a swap for a Marlin .22 mag bolt rifle. Guy said he had more use for the bolt gun. O.K. by me Got 6 for the Mini.
