Went to a gun show last wkend with full intent of trading my Colt Trooper MK III in on maybe a Ruger GP100, or possibly a Tuarus w/ a bit longer barrel (6" - 8") and was thinkin' an accross board trade. Before bringing in my Colt, I passed by a table that had maybe 15 Colt and S.W. revolvers. Happened to spy an exact dulpicate of my 4" Trooper w/ a asking price of $785, that quite honestly was not in quite the shape as mine, plus I had 3 sets of grips (orig. Colt walnut, and 2 Hogue's). I dammed near fell over!! He also had a Diamond back in great shape for 1K, and 2 blued Python's for $1200, and a nickle Python for, get this, $1650. Holy cow......what is driving up the prices of Colt's?? Granted they are nice revolvers.......but!! Needless to say I took my Trooper home with me and decided I just may 'pop' for A GP100 or Tuarus outright and keep the Trooper! Any responses??
