COLT NEW FRONTIER SAA NED BUNTLINE COMMEMORATIVE .45 LONG COLT & 12 INCH BARREL. COMPLETE WITH BEAUTIFUL WALNUT CASE & ALL SHIPPING BOXES.
Colt New Frontier SAA NED BUNTLINE COMMEMORATIVE in 6–shot .45 Long Colt with a 12 inch barrel and black “rampant colt and eagle” checkered grips.
This gorgeous Colt New Frontier with nickel finish was manufactured in 1979 as number 912 of a planned edition of only 3,000 pieces. It is not clear how many of the planned 3000 Commemoratives were manufactured or delivered.
This pristine example carries the markings and features that were standard for the limited edition with the barrel stamped “NED BUNTLINE COMMEMORATIVE”, the standard one line Colt Manufacturing address line, and “COLT NEW FRONTIER S.A.A. .45”. The left side of the frame is stamped with the standard Colt patent dates in two lines followed by the rampant Colt logo. The serial number, NB0912, is stamped on the frame forward of the front end of the trigger guard. The front sight is a tall, ramped single blade and the rear sight is adjustable.
It comes complete with a maroon velvet lined walnut presentation case with glass dust cover, locking display drawer, multiple shipping boxes hand numbered to the revolver, six nickel plated dummy display rounds with 45 Colt headstamps, a silver finished Ned Buntline Commemorative plaque and brass key.
This is a factory new Ned Buntline Commemorative with all accessories. The revolver and the case are in excellent condition, preserved for you since 1979. Any handling marks are minimal. The grips have crisp checkering. The case is excellent. The revolver appears to be excellent mechanically but we did not cycle the action in order to preserve the cylinder finish.
A classy Colt with a very showy appearance.
