Surfacing on the market in the late 1960’s, the Colt Lawman series of revolvers were part of what Colt referred to as the MK III series of pistols. While the Colt Trooper series was considered the top of the line offering within the MK III series, the Lawman was offered as a mid-grade version. The Lawman was only chambered in the powerful .357 Magnum cartridge and was the only MK III series that was produced in a 2” barrel version.
The 2" version is uncommon and is the only Lawman version to utilize a shrouded enjector rod. Unlike the Trooper, the Colt Lawman featured a standard hammer, fixed sights and barrel length configurations of either 2” or 4”. Officially, Colt produced the Lawman series of revolvers from 1969 to 1983, although Colt continued to sell off the remaining stock until 1986.
When law enforcement departments started transitioning away from revolvers like the Lawman for duty carry, many holster makers stopped making holsters to fit it. The holster models seen below are produced in versions to fit the Lawman in different barrel lengths.
