This is an extremely rare matched pair of Colt New Frontier .22 Long Rifle revolvers shipped in 1984 (Serial #G2171xx and #G2173xx). They are two of between only 100 and 150 guns made up with surplus barrels remaining after the Special Edition "Duke" (4,899 guns) was put out in 1983. Only 2316 non-special edition blue and cased guns with 4.75" barrels were produced, and these are among the most rare.
These New Frontier barrels are the only ones produced with the standard, though somewhat over sized, blade front sight. All other New Frontiers had a ramp type front sight. This was the the last type of New Frontier .22, having the cross-bolt safety, produced in the period from 1982 to 1986. One of these guns is also exceptional in that it is New-in-the-Box, unfired, with all papers and original box, numbered to the gun, included. The mate has been turned and I assume fired, but is in 99% condition. No box or papers accompany the second gun. I have featured close up pictures of the turned Colt's cylinder.
These guns are custom cased in a burl, hard wood, locking case with Colt factory coin type screw driver.
This is a great opportunity for the collector of Colt Single Action revolvers to get a one-of-a-kind pair.
We can take VISA or MasterCard for and additional 4% fee, and will consider U.S. gold and silver coins at spot value, as well as some guns.
