Guns For Sale - Colt Second Generation -- 3rd Model Dragoon .44 Percussion Revolver - No FFL

Make: Colt

Model: 3rd Model Dragoon

Serial Number: 22246

Year of Manufacture: 1976

Caliber: .44

Action Type: Single Action Percussion

Markings: The top of the barrel is marked “Address SamL Colt New York City”. The left side of the frame is stamped and filled, “Colts/Patent”. The bottom of the barrel assembly, the bottom of the frame, the bottom of the trigger guard, the heel of the grip frame, and the cylinder, are all stamped with the matching serial number 22246. The cylinder is roll engraved with “W.L. Ormsby Sc. N.Y.”

Barrel Length: 7 ½”

Sights / Optics: The gun is mounted with a brass blade front sight and a notched hammer rear sight.

Stock Configuration & Condition: The grips are varnished wood with some character to the grain. These have been handled and show some minor nicks and depressions, none which compromise the integrity of the grips. They appear to have been re-varnished. The grips rate in about good overall condition.

Type of Finish: The barrel, cylinder, and trigger are all blued steel; the frame, hammer, and rammer mechanism are all color case hardened, and the trigger guard and grip frame are all brass.

Finish Originality: The finish is original, except for a possible re-varnish of the grips.

Bore Condition: The bore is bright and the rifling is sharp. There is no evidence of erosion.

Overall Condition: This gun retains about 85% of its metal finish. There are some minor nicks at the lower right of the muzzle and there is the possible beginning of some frosting on the left side of the frame. There is a bit of wear around the cylinder notches which should be visible in the accompanying photos. There is tarnish on the grip frame which should clean up, together with a couple of tiny indentations on the heel of the grip frame. There is some wear on the barrel wedge and notch. The screw heads show some use, and are completely functional. The markings are clear and sharp. Overall, this gun rates in about Fine condition.

Mechanics: The action functions correctly, although we have not fired this gun.

Box, Paperwork & Accessories: None.

Our Assessment: One of the powerhouse firearms of the pre-cartridge black powder era, the 3rd Model Dragoon was the last of the true horse pistols manufactured by Colt. The big, beefy cylinder accommodated FIFTY grains of black powder, enough powder to achieve knockdown power unavailable, even with smokeless powder, until well into the 20th Century! Incorporating various improvements and upgrades to the earlier Colt Walker, the Dragoon was a real thumper, reliable, trouble-free, and, most of all, hard-hitting. This 2nd Gen. Colt has the benefits of modern steel and construction, and retains the collectible Colt moniker. While still good looking and collectible, this one shows use, and would make a great shooter as well as a terrific conversation starter. This will be a real treat for the lucky winning bidder.

CA Legal or CA Private Party Transferable: This gun can be sold to anyone 18 years of age with valid state issued ID.
