I have had my Trooper .357 since 1972, had it rebarreled in 1978, the original barrel had a crack in the forcing cone. You have a sturdy and reliable
revolver that will give you much good service, only caution is that you might
want to start looking for a spare barrel just in case. I was lucky to find one
in .357 a few years ago. Internal parts are the same as the Python and Official Police.
