Nice.
I have one of the early ones I bought used when I was in high school. Mine is a short barrel but is an excellent shooter.
Enjoy your new Colt.

The New Frontier I have coming is a 7 1/2” . I also have a circa 1962 with box and papers Colt Scout Buntline 9 1/2” my maternal grandfather bought new in 1962 . Well he ordered it in 1961 shortly after I arrived and didn’t receive it until 1962 .

The Colt New Frontier series of single actions makes the most sense to me for all around shooting. You can only get "so good" with non adjustable sighted guns past 50 yards or so....

Funny thing about those.....even though there's a whole lot less of Colt New Frontiers vs. the standard SAA, they bring less money......at least they do in the centerfire versions.

On the rimfire version I had one that was built sometime in the early eighties with that little safety thing-a-ma-jig built into the recess of the frame where the loading gate is. That gun would shoot 2" off to the left even with the rear sight adjusted all the way to the right.....had to unscrew the barrel a few thou. My son has it now...---6
