Have the chance to buy a Colt Scout Duotone .22 Revolver. Gun is all original with a 4-3/4" barrel. I don't know anything about this model. Are these nice guns? If you have one could you please let me know how you like it? it's in nice shape and he wants $350 for it. Thanks to all.............

Condition is everything so without seeing the firearm it's hard to value it. In 1957 and 1958 Duo Tone Frontier Scouts had the Q suffix and that was changed to an F Suffix in 1958 (not exactly sure if late '58 or end '58). The Frontier Scout is a neat little .22 and quite accurate for a fixed sight SAA .22 . Is the revolver being offered as the gun alone or does he have a box and paperwork?

GB SOLD Auctions would be a good place to look for current pricing though $350 for a Scout in relatively good shape isn't out of line unless all the bluing is gone, it's nicked up and the stocks/grips are well worn. Then it's a shooter worth $250-275 MAX.

Here's a current GB auction. A Gun Shop is selling this so retail pricing applies. Notice the finish on the barrel is worn and looks like pitting on the outside though the bore looks good. His starting price is $275 with a BUY IT NOW at $475 (no reserve auction).

Commemoratives are difficult to ascribe a value to, and don't appeal to many folks, as a general rule.

In order to be a collectible - they need their original case/papers/etc - and must be unfired.

Fired commemoratives are just used guns and can be priced as such.

I have several Duotone Frontier Scouts and like them pretty well. Generally, the Q serial numbered Scouts are worth a little more than the F numbered guns, but the difference isn't much. $350 is an excellent price if the gun is in really nice condition with box and papers. The Q serial numbered Duotones were only manufactured for about five months (November 1957 to March 1958). Colt changed the letter suffix in the serial number from Q to F and continued production until sometime in 1960. About 40,000 Duotones were produced so they are not actually very scarce. However, ones in nice condition are getting much harder to find these days.
