1979 COLT TROOPER MK III RARE E-NICKEL FINISH, 6 shot, .357 Magnum revolver with a 4″ barrel and a beautiful original Colt “Electroless” nickel finish. Manufactured just briefly in 1979-83, Colt’s proprietary “Coltguard” finish was used very sparingly and limited to certain revolver and semi-auto models only.   The Coltguard finish was developed to be more weather-resistant than other finishes. Many Colt customers believed that the steel used on these Electroless Nickel guns was much stronger and more durable than any other Colt finish. Colt applied their newly developed finish to their flagship models, although very sparingly from 1979-1983. E-Nickel Troopers have long been sought after by collectors due to their extremely limited production numbers. This is a gorgeous example with a finish that rates at 99%. Mechanically, the gun functions flawlessly. There is a slight turn line on the cylinder and the original factory Pachmayr “Presentation” rubber grips with their gold medallions are absolutely pristine. This is a true collector’s package, shipping in the original factory serialized box along with the manual and factory paperwork.
