This is a stainless steel special edition from 1983. It is a 6 inch barrel with a coiled "python " etched on the left side of the gun and other laser ethings on the barrel (both sides). It also came with Colt custom shop Pachmayer Presentation rubber grips, carrying case, historical letter, and only 250 were made.
What is the value of a nickle-plated 357 magnum colt python trooper special with 6inch barrel serial 97859 E?
First of all the gun is either a Python OR a Trooper. They are two different revolvers.The Trooper was a police issue basically. The Python was best in class,and by the way,the best revolver ever made.Pretty soon the python will be selling at 2000 bucks in good condition. Colt stopped making them around 1996.
my understanding is that the King Cobra was based on the earlier Trooper (such as the venerable Trooper Mk III) revolvers but featured a more modern design with full length underbarrel lug and solid top barrel rib, and more modern user friendly adjustable rear sights. It was basically intended as a less expensive alternative to the Colt Python,
