FIREARM HISTORY AND FEATURES:
The Colt Lawman was as a medium frame, 6-shot, double-action/single-action revolver chambered in .357 Magnum, produced from 1969 to 1983.
It was designed as a more economical, ‘service-grade’ or ‘police issue’ version of the Colt Trooper, intended for law enforcement looking for cheaper sidearms or private armed security (but shared the same action and internal parts).
It differed from the Trooper in that it came with fixed sights, a heavy barrel (available in 2″ and 4″ only) and no ejector rod shroud (except for the later 2″ version).
Early Lawman revolvers came with thinner hammers and narrow triggers, but most came with the standard MK III Trooper hammers and triggers.
Initial guns also came with narrow service grips, but most came with the larger target grips of the Trooper.
This gun is in good to very good, used condition. It is mechanically sound and functional.
The original, overall finish is still good, with some light wear around the muzzle, some extremely light wear on the front edges of the frame, and the odd, very small, light scratch in places on the barrel, frame and cylinder (nothing very significant).
There is an extremely fine drag line on cylinder, and the lockup is still extremely tight.
The original Colt, wooden target grips are still very good, with the odd, very light scratch in places.
I would say that this revolver was not fired excessively.
This firearm is suitable for home self defense, but is perhaps a little large (heavy) for every day carry, unless for a large-framed person.
It was a firearm designed for law enforcement and holster carry after all.
This firearm is suitable for use in the following sports:
- IDPA – Revolver division
- SADPA MPDS – Revolver (REV) division
- ICORE – Classic division
- PIN SHOOTING – Stock gun & Stock revolver
- STEEL CHALLENGE
- METALLIC SILHOUETTE
This revolver may also have some collectors value, as they are not very common to find.
