New Acquisition (Beware! NOT a Ruger, and NOT a DA)

Post by RoninPA »

Customer brought this into the shop to see if I would sell it for him. Asked him how much, and after he told me I bought it on the spot.

Colt Frontier Scout, .22LR only, Q suffix s/n (dates 1958). I would put it at 90% - normal wear on the muzzle and cylinder for a 62 year old gun. Bore and chambers are excellent to damn near factory condition. Grips (as you can see) show next to no wear.

This matches a F suffix Frontier Scout from 1958 that my Dad gave to me.

Very nice Ron! You will need a bigger S/A display case on the shop wall. I saw 2 there when I visited a few years ago and it sounds like the collection has grown.
Some people sit on $.05 of knowledge like it is the treasure of Egypt. I will teach anyone $.10 worth just to prove a point...
