Hi, The Colt Trooper was made from 1953 to 1969. The Trooper Mark III superceded the previous Trooper and had a redesigned lock mechanism. It was manufactured from 1969 to 1983 in blue and nickel finish with 4-, 6-, and 8-inch barrel lengths. Blue Book for the 4" barrel as of Sept. 8, 2016 lists the gun's value as between $225 (95 percent), $325 (98 percent), and $395 (100 percent) for insurance replacement value $500.00. I hope this helps you. Thanks Mike
