The 7-1/2″ SAA Colt New Frontier

For me, at least, the original Single Action Army is the most eye-pleasing of sixguns. However, in a more practical sense, it needs better sights than the standard hog wallow trough through the top of the frame and post front sight.

A Little Off the Top

If you’re into the classic stuff, the only thing cooler than a proven service pistol is a slightly smaller version better equipped for concealed carry.
