Mechanics: The action functions correctly. The cylinder locks up with very little play on each chamber. The trigger is crisp. We did not fire this revolver. As with all used firearms, a thorough cleaning may be necessary to meet your maintenance standards.
Box, Paperwork & Accessories: This revolver comes in a two-piece faux-wood cardboard Colt box which is fit for the extra cylinder and with a serial-matching warranty card confirming this revolver shipped with dual cylinders. The box has minor storage wear, most at the corners, having been well preserved by the cardboard sleeve which is also included, in about Fine-Excellent condition.
Our Assessment: The Frontier Scout is a scaled down version of it’s predecessors/grandfathers, the SAA and Frontier Six Shooter. Made by colt and true to the original design, this one was made in 1969 and has one cylinder chambered for the ubiquitous .22 Long Rifle cartridge, the other for the more powerful .22 Magnum. It is an “F” model, having a lightweight alloy frame. This example is in Excellent condition, appearing to have spent more time in the included box than out. This should make a fun little plinker for the lucky winner or a great addition to a Colt collection. Please see our photos and good luck!
