I heard that story before and asked the gentleman where he got his info from and he proceeded to tell me how the Frontier Scout came with the 2 cylinders and naturally had the mag barrel. Then he told me Colt didn't have any .22lr spec barrels and they all were magnum spec barrels for all the models. I just thanked the fellow and continued on about my merry way. Where do they come up with some of these stories?
Majic, it beats me. A lot of times theses stories come from people who talk about those nasty, old, bankrupt, over complicated and expensive Colts to justify buying or recommending a cheaper brand.
Real Colt people know the truth.
