DESCRIPTION

A Colt 1st Model Dragoon revolver manufactured in 1849, SN 6365. 44 caliber, 6 shot cylinder with 7.5-inch barrel. Martially marked with "U.S." on left side of frame and remnants of inspection cartouche on right grip. Barrel marked "'ADDRESS SAMCOLT NEW YORK CITY".  Frame marked "COLT'S / PATENT / U.S."  Inspector marks on various other parts. One piece walnut grips, brass squareback trigger guard.

Only 7,000 of the 1st Model Dragoon revolvers were manufactured between 1848 to 1850. An early martial Colt revolver that would have seen much service on America's early frontier.

 

CONDITION

    Revolver is in overall good condition. The barrel serial number has been restamped and the serial number of the loading lever (503) does not match the frame (all other marks are original and correct).  Grips show wear and rounding with partial military cartouche on right side. No cylinder scene remains. Action is in good working order. All screws appear to be originals. Wedge is a replacement.
