    Colt New Frontier 22 sight needed

    I recently came up with a theft recovery Colt New Frontier 22 with adjustable rear sight. It has been somewhat abused - the entire front sight is missing - ramp and base. It has a 6" barrel that I am thinking about shortening to 4 5/8" but I need to find a sight. Anyone got any good ideas?

    I will eventually be looking for some grips as well.

    Thanks

    Might be easier to find a front sight from a Ruger super single six. My old 3 screw uses a screw in base with undercut sight. Would require drill and tap.

    It will be easier to replace the barrel than solder on a front sight. You have an adjustable rear sight so the new barrel has less fitting than a gun with a fixed rear sight. Ebay now allows barrels, I bet one is on there right now.
