I just saw a Colt New Frontier , 4 1/2" barrel, at a retail store for $325. It is a .22LC and in very used condition. Is it worth the price? I know Colts always increase in value, so if I restore it, will I get my money back later?

Colt revolvers are priced a little high because of the brand.
The price really depends on the condition of the piece - since you state it is "very used", I'm thinking the price might be a little high. BUT- if it is in good working condition and locks up well, it is right on the line for me.

Strange as it may sound, any "restoration" work that you do will destroy the value, not increase it. Replacement springs or other such maintenance are okay, but a refinish / reblue is a definite no-no.

If, as you stated, it's a .22 cal, then it's a New Frontier Scout, not a New Frontier. Blue book on a New Frontier Scout:

100% $500
98% $375
95% $300
90% $250
80% $200
70% $175

If, as you stasted, it's "well-used", then it's probably at or below 70%.
