New Colt today

I was able to snag this old 1968 Colt Trooper today. It looked awful lonesome so I am having shipped to my house so it will have some Colt brothers and sisters to keep it company. I think its in pretty good shape. The pictures are from the seller. I'll get some better pictures up when I have it in hand. Any body care to show off your Colts, just jump right in.

Congratulations on the "new" Trooper. Looks like it is fine condition. Enjoy!

I have no DA Colts now, but always had a soft place in my heart (head?) for them. My very first handgun to own without being "halves" on was a Colt New Service. Also my first custom gun. And went through many Colt M1917s when they sold for $25 or so.

Bob, did you say $25. or so. I can't imagine any Colt today selling for a reasonable price. Some of the prices are just mind boggling. But we still keep buying them don't we. Hehe.
