Superb Colt Third Model Dragoon

Fresh to the market from a 50 year old collection of top end guns is this magnificent 3rd Model Dragoon. This is one of the finest dragoons on the market - 100% original, 100% complete, superb walnut grips, 90% vivid cylinder scene, sharp edges, mechanically perfect, all matched serial numbers, and generous traces of finish in protected areas. In this era of worn out grey dragoons bringing $5,000 and more - the opportunity to buy an early dragoon in this condition is a rare event. These huge 4+ pound revolvers are from the earliest days of Colt firearms history. These are the guns issued to the U.S. MOUNTED RIFLES AND DRAGOONS on the western frontier in the years following the Mexican War. A truly superb example worthy of any quality collection. SOLD.
