buying a colt frontier scout in .22 LR cal




Does anyone know anything about the year this was made it has 1466xxF s/number. It is a single shot very little use. The bluing is in almost new condtion, with very little scratching. it has a screw for the cyl. hold bar, it is a single action, with 4 inch barrel and black plastic grips. would like to find out when it was made and if 100.00 is to much to pay for it. thanks

100.00...too much?
Greetings,
The first firearm that I owned(which I still have)was a Frontier Scout 22 Colt that my father bought for me when I was 5 yrs old.That was in 1962.My Father paid 65.00 for it then.47 YEARS later,100.00 (inflation taken into account) IS A STEAL!!!
If you want a fine plinking revolver that you can give to your kids someday,BUY IT!
Trust me....you aren't going to lose any $ on the purchase.
Regards,
DAT85

1466xxF was made in 1961.
Its a Colt Frontier Scout "Q" or "F" model, which was the first of the Scout series.
This series was made from 1956 to 1970 with about 246,000 made.
These early Scouts had aluminum frames, later models had cast Zamac (zinc) or steel frames.

The barrel is measured from the front of the cylinder to the end of the barrel, so yours is a 4 3/4" model.
Value depends entirely on actual condition.

Assuming its in about 90% original condition, it'd be worth around $250 to $300.

I know...zombie post.

I was looking around for some info on one of these little Colt's and my Google-Fu directed me to this post. I just had to comment on one thing.

Are you scared that those guns are gonna jump up and start shooting all by themselves? I haven't seen that many trigger locks in a long time

Nice little revo and a good price
