Colt MKIII Trooper (whats it worth)

My neighbor has a Colt MKIII Trooper. He got it in 1975 and used it twice. Its in absolute perfect condition. What price range do you think he would be in if he decided to sell it?

I very seldom see Mark III's for sale, in any condition, but I know of one in SE PA (Berks County) that was refinished selling for $375, so I'd ESTIMATE approx. $500 in that condition, with box, etc.
Price is what it would sell for retail, not what he would get from a dealer, which would be about 35% of the retail.

I passed on one this past weekend at a gun show. Guy was asking $400, some holster wear but other than that then gun was in good condition. I offered $350 and then passed on him to buy the S&W 19. I called him on Sunday and it was gone . I will find one one day, they are out there.

It depends if it is 22LR, 22WMR, or 357 mag, finish etc. The 357's sell for the least. Fine revolver. My 6" Trooper Mark III 357 is my primary shooter 357. Love that gun. Price should be in the $400-$450 area (emphasis on $450).

The 22LR are next in line and the 22mags tend to be the most expensive due to perceived rarity. I like the 22LR models. Accurate heavy revolver. Great for hunting, plinking, or target practice. Price will be in the $500-$600 area for a 22LR if he is asking market price in as new condition. You may get it for a bit cheaper.

The 22 mags will run a little more than the 22LR models. Again great revolver.
