    Wow, that is a great looking SAA New Frontier.
    Please post more detailed pics in the Single Action Army section of this forum. You and your gun will get much more attention there. Also tell us the serial number, so it is possible to determine the year it was build.
    You should invest 100.00 $ and order the Colt Archive Letter at the following link. If the engraving is made at the Colt factory the letter will be 200.00$ but it increases the value of your gun substantial.

    All NF's that have a serial number starting with a zero are 3rd generation guns. Probably made in the 1980's. That engraving appears to be custom meaning it was most likely done 'outside colt' by an independent engraver. It is very nice quality work from what I can tell from the pictures.

    Agreed, that is a nice looking Colt. Would be curious to know if it was engraved by Colt though. A letter would be a good source of that information and that way you would know for sure instead of left guessing who did the engraving.

    Wow, what a beautiful gun and a great inheritance. I agree with the above comments – I would bite the bullet and get the letter.

    It looks heavily etched, and then gold or silver inlayed. Don't know if the Colt factory did etching in this period of time, or shopped it out. A nice-looking set though.

    Some very interesting looking custom carved grips. It would be worth while finding out about them, too.
