c1851 Antique CIVIL WAR Era 2nd Model COLT DRAGOON .44 PERCUSSION Revolver
One of 2,700; Second Year Production, Made in 1851
Here we present an antique U.S. issue Colt 2nd Model Dragoon Revolver, manufactured in 1851 in Hartford, Connecticut. Colt produced about 2700 2nd Model Dragoon Revolvers between 1850 and 1855. At least part of an Army contract for 1,000 revolvers dated February 4, 1850, was filled with 2nd Models.
The revolver has the distinctive combination of a square-back, brass trigger guard and rectangular cylinder stops found only on the 2nd Model Dragoons and has the V-shaped mainspring used to about serial number 10,000. The half round barrel is marked: “-ADDRESS SAML COLT NEW-YORK CITY-” reading from the muzzle to the breech. The left front of the frame is roll-stamped: “COLT’S/PATENT/U.S.” in three lines. The full serial number, “9707” is located on the barrel lug, frame, trigger guard, backstrap, cylinder and loading lever.
The overall condition is good. Original gray patina. Strong action. Good, clear bore. Numbers match. The left side of the grip is missing a chip in the toe, and the right side has heart carved in. Here is a great historical revolver from the pre-Civil War era!
