This is an outstanding example of a Martially Marked Colt Third Model Dragoon Revolver. This gun has been pictured on our opening page for ten years for a reason. The cylinder scene is so visible, it looks like a pen & ink drawing. The patination is exceptional. The gun shows strong blue on the barrel mixing with brown patina and smoky case-colors to the frame, lever and hammer that are starting to silver-out. The scene is about perfect and the grips are nice and full with fine cartouches. The action is sharp, as are all markings and edges. A wonderful 3rd model that was never abused and always well cared for.
