Antique Colt Second Model Dragoon Revolver
Rare and Desirable Model of Colt’s Horse Pistol
Here we present an antique, much sought after Colt Second Model Dragoon Revolver. 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.
The Second Model was first offered in 1850 and continued production through 1851, for a total of only 2,700, the rarest of Colt’s models of Dragoons. Colt’s Dragoons experienced some of the harshest conditions the mid-19th century had to offer, and it is amazing that any survived, especially in this condition.
This specimen is in fantastic condition, as cleaned. The one piece, walnut grips have been refinished and still preserve the inspector cartouche “WAT” for Capt. William Anderson Thornton. The frame also bears the “U.S.” under the “Colt’s Patent” marking. The cylinder shows the entirety of the Texas Ranger Indian Battle scene, with only small detail lost to age and cleaning. It is still quite clear. The action is excellent. All serial numbers match. This is a great addition for any collection.
