Default New Frontier on the way!

I was notified that I was the winning bidder on Gun Broker for a Colt New Frontier, 7 1/2", .45 Colt caliber. I've been on the lookout forsuch a revolver, even had friends scouring the folks in their area. I had two on Gun Groker slip away when I was outbid at the last minute. Well, one was out bid, the second my maximum bid was not even Reserve met. I had sort of thought that this would happen today, but I got it somewhat below my maximum bid. Should have it early next week.

Whoop-de-doo!

I'm quite pleased.

Since the reserve was not met did the seller agree to sell it to you? By auction rules the seller does not have to accept your bid and could just re list it.

That one was re-listed.

For that I am thankful, as my bid was about $500 more than I paid for the one I did buy!

Very, very nice Bob. Congratulations on the find.

I've been mulling over picking up a 5-1/2" Colt SAA in .45 LC, and you seem like the person to ask about this.....

How are the NEW Colts compared to the older specimens in terms of the quality of the action? I'd like to get a new gun vs. a well worn one, but if the older guns have a better feel to them I would go that route.

What say you? Not worried about cost - just function (#1) and appearance (#2).

Thanks.

The current production Colt SAAs are the best of the best. Those of a few years back were well made, but had terrible actions and required a trigger job from the git-go. Not so with current guns. My new New Frontier .44 Special came with a very good trigger, and fit and finish was better. Fit was always good, but the rollmarks on those older guns looked sloppy. New guns are neat and crisp.

Function and finish are superb.
