Default New Colts...........

I've been lookin for a Colt New Frontier in .44 Special, without much success, until yesterday. I had made a trade with another shooter for a 5 1/2" Colt New Frontier in .44 Special. Had to be sent to my gunsmith for FFL. The gun was due in yesterday, so I tried to kill some time until it arrived. Well, I stumble upon a 7 1/2" .44 Special New Frontier while I was killing time and sort of accidentally bought it, too.



The pair double my .44 Special battery.

"accidentally"... very believable. Nice looking guns though.

I am so green with jealousy. Nice pair (something I don't say to a man to often).

Very nice. Congrats. Excuse my ignorance, but I don't know much about SAO revolvers. Why 44 Special and not Magnum? As long as they make these in 44 Magnum, why not get those for the added versatility?

Again, please excuse my naïveté. Prolly a stupid question, I'm just curious.

Well, as for .44 Magnums, I have these to select from:



I'm don't mean to be snide, I've had my long run of experience with the .44 Magnum. But maybe I'm getting senile, but I'm getting back into the .44 Special as a more relaxed way of shooting.

Further, Colt does not offer these in .44 Magnum, currently only .44 Special and .45 Colt. And, I did want a Colt.

And why did I buy a .44 Special? Because they were there.

Bob Wright


P.S. Most of these are .44 Magnum, and are Rugers
