I keep hearing from my customers and fellow collectors that they can't find any good Colt's, that they just don't show up any more. Well, here you go! In the 19,XXX range, this big Dragoon is a 100% original 3rd Model with the rare and desirable U. S. Dragoons motif on its cylinder. It shows about 30% blue on the barrel mixing with a deep brown patina on the balance of the gun with blue in the stop-slots. The scene is about 95% and shows a little wear. Grips are very full and fine showing little use. The stock is also very fine showing some blue on the inside of the yolk and the balance a matching brown patina to the gun. Action, edges, markings and screw heads are excellent. This gun was listed in one of Fred Sweeney's catalogs about 15 years ago at $35,000.00. Rarity, condition, desirability and a fair price.
