New from GunBroker......Part 2

Got this Colt New Frontier on GunBroker last week, first chance I had to get to the range with it.

Took a few bracketing adjustments in the rear sight, but sort of got it in the ball park:



Still got a ways to go. The trigger pull is atrocious, maybe like sixteen pounds. Going to slick that up and shorten the barrel. But for now..........

Work on that 16 pounder instead.

I already have a 7 1/2" .45 Colt, and the bargain price for this one left me enough cash to do some custom work on this. There is no sacrilege in making it suit my tastes.
