anyone know s';t about colt revolvers?

Postby dieselbeef » Mon May 15, 2017 8:22 pm

just got a 1978 trooper mk111. pretty clean holster wear stuff..

anyways the sideplate screws been buggered up so somebodys been rootin in it. I wanna take the side off to make sure it aint a pos in there and to clean it good cuz the oil and some of the grease on this gun is brown..like its almost become wax brown.

the trigger is really hard..smooth and breaks ok I guess but its hard to pull..too hard I think..


wheres the best place to start or is there a good colt guy somewhere around tampa?

got the target grips and the rubbers and the box and all in a trade.
im the other gary...

Colt revolvers are more complicated than S&W or Rugers.
Cole's in Clearwater may be able to look it over for you. They are on the corner of Douglas and Sunset Point.

You might start with the Kuhnhausen book.
