My first Colt
Hello to all,
This is my first post in what looks like a great forum. I just purchased my first Colt revolver yesterday and it sure is perdy! It's a 357 mag. Trooper mk III with a 8" barrel.
Checking what I could it looks to be from 1969. I was wondering if it's possible to interchange the barrels on these, like if I found a 5". I'm planning on using this one for deer but thought it would be nice in a smaller version. Will post a pic after the sun comes up.
Welcome to the forum... Congrats on the Colt. I have a Mk III with a 4" barrel. I'm sure you'll enjoy it. I don't know that the barrels are interchangeable like the Dan Wessons, but I'd imagine that a good smith could fix you up.
Man, you certainly bought a beast.
Beautiful, I'd never change the barrel. Get another short barreled pistol, but please don't touch your Trooper. Shoot it, enjoy it, but leave it as it is.
Should be "purdy".
