From the 2010 Standard Catalogue of Firearms:

Trooper MK III
This revolver was intended to be the target-grade version of the
MK III series. It is offered with a 4", 6", or 8" vent-rib barrel with a
shrouded ejector rod similar in appearance to the Python. It is
chambered for the .22 LR and the .22 Magnum, as well as .357
Magnum. It features adjustable target sights, checkered walnut
target grips, and is either blued or nickel-plated. This model was
manufactured between 1969 and 1983.
NIB Exc. V.G. Good Fair Poor
750 400 325 200 150 100

I have 4" version and consider it to be an excellent revolver,,,
It's one that is only going to increase in value.

Plenty of them sell on, look the ones with bids that is your best bet for determining values on Colts.Prices have been on their way up for some time.The printed values in the books lag considerably between printed values and actual real world values.The books don't address guns with their original packaging and many people place a premium on guns in their original box' in particular Colt.
