The MK III series debuted in 1969 and was produced until 1982. Intended to be the first major advancement of Colt’s designs since the beginning of the 20th Century, the MK IIIs used the new ‘J’ frame and had no interchangeable parts with older models. The new revolvers were considered groundbreaking as they were the first modern revolver designs to employ a state of the art transfer-bar lockwork system. The revolver was designed so it could only be fired if the trigger was deliberately pulled completely to the rear. It also vastly improved on the earlier design in durability, and offered the advantage of harder and more wear resistant internal parts. The springs used in the Mark III internals were also an improvement. Unlike the older flat style, they were coiled and made entirely of corrosion-resistant stainless steel.
Colt's website serial number look-up dates this revolver to 1970.
A few spots of mild holster wear and light ring on the cylinder. Firearm is in overall excellent condition for it's age. Action feels like it's riding on ball bearings, very tight lock up and crisp single-action trigger break.
