    It so happens I picked up two Colts last week. I had made a deal with a gent from out of town for a 5 1/2" Colt New Frontier .44 Special. It was due in at my gunsmith's last Wednesday, and as I waited I dropped by another gun shop and there was a 7 1/2" Colt New Frontier .44 Special! And, before I knew what was happening, I had bought it.

    Here they are:



    This doubles my battery of .44 Specials.

    What else could you do under the circumstances. Nice pics.

    The 7 1/2" barreled dates 1978 production, the 5 1/2" is 2011 production.

    The older gun I don't believe was ever fired, doesn't appear to have been. But its trigger pull is so rough I felt like I needed a come-along to trip the hammer.
