Our Assessment: Made by Colt in 1969 to celebrate the sesquicentennial of Alabama this is a limited edition Colt Frontier Scout revolver. It is actually the very last of the Alabama guns, number 3089 of 3,089 produced. The gun is in about Excellent condition with only some light handling marks in its beautiful silver and gold finish. The revolver comes with a Colt presentation case. This would be a great find for an Alabama resident. A limited edition gun like this, and the very last one, would also interest the Colt collector in general, especially in this high condition. Please see our photos and good luck!
