Our Assessment: On offer here is the adjustable sighted cousin of Colt’s legendary Single Action Army, the New Frontier Single Action Army. While the original SAA revolvers have rugged, fixed sights, the New Frontier has a ramped front sight and adjustable rear sight, giving it a rather contemporary appearance. Still made by Colt and true to the original design, this one was made between 1982-1986 based on its cross-bolt safety feature which was offered during that period. This New Frontier model chambered for .22 LR. This example is in Excellent condition with light storage wear, a great bore, and strong mechanics. The finish throughout is strong and beautiful. This revolver also comes with its original serial matching box that shows only light storage wear and is in Fine condition. This should make a fun little plinker for the lucky winner. Please see our photos and good luck!
