    Attn: Baldy

    Thought of you last week. I was in a pawn shop and saw a pristine Colt Trooper Mk III, blue. Seems asking price was $450.00

    Not my cup of tea or it would have gone home with me.

    Talking

    Oh me! Thanks for the heads up Bob but after the gun show the other day I am done buying for a good while. I picked up a couple of S&W M/36's no dash in new condition for $600 off a private seller. One blued (1973) and one nickeled (1983). Here's a picture.

    That's a good price on that MK III as they are going for $700 to $900 most everywhere else. That would be a good trading gun at a gun show.

    The 36

    Now that you posted, there is a blue 36 like you posted in the same shop. Looks pristine in shape, but did not examine the gun. Also in another pawn shop is a 2" Model 10 Smith with rubber baby bumper grips, maybe Hogue.

    Well I am broke now but I agree with you on the baby bumpers. My MK III and one of my Rugers had them on. There gone now and I got some originals back on them.

    Hi Larry I got mine in a pawn shop for $350 about two months ago. It's rough as there's a lot of chips in the nickel but it's tight and a good shooter. We was in a pawn shop in South Carolina and they had one that was in real good shape looks wise and they wanted $950. They wouldn't come down a dime on it. Seen two at the gun show last week at $700 and $825 both nickel and in fair condition. It's crazy what them old Colt's are going for.

    Another Trooper

    Dropped in the same pawnshop Friday. The Trooper was gone, but in its place was another one-this one looking brand new. It looked un-fired, and was priced at $549.00 (why not $550?).

    This gun had the square butt stocks, without the bottom finger groove at the toe of the butt. Is this a significant difference?
