Description

The SAA New Frontier Colt New Frontier SAA in 44 spl cal. This is a NIB with the book. Wood grips with colt medallion, fantastic case colors. 7 1/2" barrel Unturned cylinder. A modern version of the flat top target SAA was introduced in 1961 as the New Frontier. A presentation version was made for President John F. Kennedy, who had coined the term "new frontier" during his 1960 election campaign. The New Frontier has a flat top frame. The top strap of this frame is considerably more substantial than the rounded top strap found on standard SAA models. The sights consist of a target-type fully adjustable rear and a serrated ramp front with a square top blade. Caliber .44 Special, Serial numbers end with the letters "NF." The production of 2nd Generation New Frontier models ran from 1961 until production of all 2nd Generation SAA's ceased in 1975. But the model was reinstated in 1978 (a 3rd Generation SAA) and continued until the New Frontier was finally discontinued in 1983. In 1984 SAA revolvers became available only from the Colt Custom Shop, and the New Frontier model is not available at all. This is a pity because the SAA New Frontier was Colt's only big bore hunting revolver. Serial #07403NF
