|One of only 2,700 made this is serial number 10322. The second model is recognizable by it’s sqareback trigger guard and cylinder stops in the rectangular shape.|
The barrel is marked “ADDRESS SAMl COLTNEW-YORK CITY” the left side of the frame reads “COLT’S PATENT” Case hardened frame hammer and lever with one piece walnut grips. This revolver shows some signs of the original finish and the cylinder scene is no longer visible as is common with the dragoon revolvers due to extensive use over the years. The cylinder scene was rolled on at the factory rather than engraved as are the serial number and other markings. Therefore it worn off quite rapidly in the filed from use.
Of great interest is the presence on the right wood grip of 2 distinct notches presumably indicating two violent ends at its hand.

|The Colt Dragoons are among the most romantic of the Colt firearms as they were primarily responsible for the increased reputation of Sam Colt with the recommendation of the Texas Rangers who used Dragoons successfully and expressed praise for them before Congress.|
The action works perfectly and the condition is good.
