Colt Trooper 22 combo



Log in to see fewer ads
I traded for a Colt Trooper iii 22lr with a 22 Magnum cylinder with it. My question is did Colt offer the Trooper iii combo 22/22 mag. It’s a 4 inch in Nickel finish.
Thank You

I don’t remember ever seeing one.

They made their single action 22 revolvers in a combo. I never saw a Trooper combo.

I don't believe the Trooper Mark III combo was ever cataloged. i have heard (read) of one such example in the past. It was probably over in the Colt Forum, but don't recall.

I traded for a Colt Trooper in 22lr that came with an extra cylinder in 22mag. Will it be ok to fire 22mag out of the 22lr barrel? Thanks

I don’t have a clear answer for you because I don’t believe the Trooper is a factory piece. I believe someone fit a magnum cylinder to a 22lr Trooper revolver.

What does the barrel have stamped on it?

22lr and 22 Mag have a slightly different bore diameter. As heavy as that revolver is, the odds of a problem may be remote, but without it being inspected by a professional, I wouldn’t guarantee that it is safe.

Most 22lr/22Mag combos use the 22 Mag bore diameter.

M2HB is correct with his info.
22lr is .222 bore diameter.
22 mag is 224 bore diameter.
I wouldn't create such a conversion, but others have,(not specifically on a Trooper) and I haven't heard of bad reports from shooting them.
Frankly, I see no need for a 22 mag handgun, unless a person has a thing for all things magnum. They are LOUD. If you actually need more than a 22lr, just get a 38.
Plenty of fun to have with the vast number of 22lr offerings,from CBs to Stingers.

Mine is marked 22LR. I did some research on the Colt forum and they did offer a convertible Trooper III in limited numbers(they theorized less than 500) One poster had a pic of an original box with a spot for the extra cylinder and the box was marked conv. Other posters remembered seeing them in stores with barrels marked in either 22lr or 22mag. Guess I’m gonna have to pay Colt the $75 for the research on my specific pistol. Thanks

If you have a relatively rare piece, the letter will be worth the investment.

Strangest thing about it is it has a 3 inch barrel. I can’t find any info about Colt Trooper iii’s with 3 inch barrels.

A 3” barrel in 22 Mag is going to be loud, for sure.

Are you measuring the barrel from the front of the cylinder to the tip of the barrel?
