1848 Antique COLT 1st Model DRAGOON .44 Revolver
Rare and Desirable Model of Colt’s Horse Pistol
Here we present an antique Colt First Model Dragoon Revolver, made in 1848, in Hartford, Connecticut. This pistol was designed for use by horse-mounted rifleman, and it is so much pistol that you will want a horse to carry it for you. This pistol weighs in at over 4 pounds. Though it was not Colt’s best seller, it has become one of the most iconic of the Colt pistols. Only about 7,000 of this variant was ever produced. Many were used in the American Civil War, though the Union would adopt the much smaller Colt 1860 Army, a much-streamlined version with the same .44 caliber firepower.
The barrel is part round, part octagonal. The top of the barrel flat is marked “ADDRESS SAML COLT NEW YORK CITY”. The left side of the frame reads “COLT’S/PATENT/U.S.”
This specimen is in good condition. The metal parts have a dark grey patina. The markings are clear and legible. The serial numbers match, sans the wedge. The walnut grips are fine. The bore is very good. The action is strong.
