Hope someone can help. I'm looking for a Colt New Frontier barrel 4 3/4 or 5 1/2 inch in nickle in 357. Any ideas?
Thanks :)

The supply of Colt NF barrels has pretty well dried up, BUT the .357 was less popular than the larger calibers, so you may be able to still find one.

What you may have to do, is buy a blued barrel, and have it plated.

Gun Parts is THE main Colt parts supplier, but all they have listed in .357 is a 7 1/2".
You might contact them, since they often have parts not listed.

Also, you can contact Colt for a source they may know about.

Another POSSIBLE source is:
Pittsburgh Handgun Headquarters
1330 Center Ave.
Pittsburgh, PA 15229
(412) 766-6100

Pittsburgh used to be Colt's warranty repair over-flow service, and they have Colt parts.

Last, you can advertise on the gun forums, and in The Gun List and The Shotgun News.
