Well, I found it and brought it home with me. It is a 6” Colt Trooper who someone abused terribly. The finish is gone and it has some pitting, but it is a Colt. The trigger pull is phenomenal on the this old mis-treated revolver, but it is a Colt. The lockup is tight as a drum and it functions perfectly. It is ugly but it is a Colt. It was marked 439 and offered 350 and it came home with me. I hope it shoots good.

Yes, I am drawn to a gun like this just like I am to a stray puppy. I finally got around to giving it a good cleaning, that is when I discovered the problem. The rear sight elevation screw is frozen into the frame. I did not force it but soaked it in liquid wrench. Next morning it would turn about an 1/8 of a turn, more liquid wrench. Next day it backed out although very stiff. I cleaned it ll up and re-assembled. It works but not well, I need a new elevation screw which I’m sure will be hard to come by. I will sight it in in a day or two and if it shoots where my pet loads need too I’ll leave it as is. Even with all this I love these old guns. Anybody got a Trooper elevation screw?
