This superb Second Model Dragoon appears to be one of the martials sold to the civilian market, as it bears "U.S." on the frame and "H" inspection on left side of grip and cylinder. The condition of serial No. 8940 is superb; barrel retains nearly all the original pasty Martial type bluing. Lever retains considerable case colors. Case colors on frame are excellent for a dragoon with some vividity mostly on the left side. Cylinder retains most original pasty military bluing with extremely strong cylinder scene, one of the strongest cylinder scenes we have observed on any dragoon. "U.S. Dragoons" is still proud on the surface of the cylinder. Pin safeties are intact with one exception. Walnuts grips retain nearly all their varnish, frame screws retain most of finish. Trigger guard and backstrap retain nearly all their original heavy silver plating with some minor wear. Deluxe case with brass corners and strapping, wine red velvet lining slightly faded. Colt's patent flask with stand of arms has considerable lacquer; only traces of gilding on spout and top. Includes Colt's patent brass .44 mold and one box of Sage cartridges. This is one of the finest Colt Dragoons we have been privileged to offer. CORRECTION: Barrel length is 7-1/2"
