    New Frontier .22 VFW commemerative

    Just got this pistol and the ser# is not ;listed on the Colt site (it is G20XXXX). I can't find anything about it. Any ideas?

    It's probably too new to be listed on the site. Someone here will know more about it than I do.
    Cheers,

    I never heard of a VFW commemorative gun made on a New Frontier .22 but there are a lot of things I've never hear of! The G2xxxxx serial number would indicate that the revolver was made in the period from 1982 to 1986. These revolvers had a "cross-bolt" safety device that can be seen under the loading gate as seen in the attached photo.

    I believe there are some commemoratives that were done under direct contract with Colt for an organization that never were made available to the general public...the entire production run was spoken for by the organization members. They would approach Colt or whatever gun company and were given a price for X amount of guns. They could even request special serial numbers as long as they were within federal regulations. I imagine even one VFW lodge could contract for their own if enough members were willing to pony up the dollars.

    Some years ago I picked up a Marlin .444 made for some company (can't remember the company). There was nothing special about it...a standard .444 with the company's commemorative disc in the buttstock. It was cheap and I resold it some time later.
