Finally Joined The Stable



Log in to see fewer ads
I finally became a Colt owner when I picked up a Frontier Scout last week. It's the first single action revolver I've ever shot. It's an F series manufactured in 1966. No papers, box, or mag cylinder, but it's in pretty good condition, and I purchased it to shoot. Looking online at prices, I think I got a decent deal.

They are very nice revolvers. I got mine for Christmas, 1959 and have put thousands of rounds through it. I've read that the barrels were made on the same machinery as the Python barrels which means they are top drawer. Mine is very accurate and has a sweet trigger.

I think you're going to love it.

Nice gun. I have a F series made in 1965 I got at a gun show used. Mine has some Colt plastic stag grips that was added to a later series. So not a collector gun but I bought it to shoot too.

Welcome to paradise - I'm sure you'll love yours.


I found one several years ago, and is the last gun I'd ever sell.

i bought mine new in 1966 , twenty years later an exwife convinced me to sell it , i have since replaced it - twice , one 66 and one 67 , neither in quite the condition of my original but i wont part with either again , i have been looking for a peacemaker to keep them company ,

It's been a great shooter. I enjoy the loading/unloading process, and taking my time to try and place accurate shots, while hearing others on the range burn through their high capacity mags as rapidly as possible...

that is part of the allure and adventure of shooting SAA revolvers if you have the patience to savor what your doing , it is part of why i moved to SASS from 3gun , also i got old slow and arthritic but who needs to hear complaints , something about the old west guns just brings us back to our youth , these colts are very fun revolvers ,
