COLT 2ND MODEL DRAGOON
SERIAL NUMBER 9836

Two thousand, four hundred Second Model Dragoons were manufactured between 1851 and 1852.  This old gun has been thrown up in somebody's attic for a considerable length of time.  It is in a heavy, natural rust but not badly disfigured from pitting.  All of the serial numbers are matching, the barrel, frame, trigger guard, back strap, cylinder, wedge and loading lever all have the correct serial numbers.  The nipples are still intact.  The frame markings are clear but the barrel markings are almost gone.  It looks like somebody has beat up the top of the barrel pretty good.  The grips are original and decent with minor chips and cracks.  A couple of the screws that are present look like replacements but the rest are original.  You notice, right beside the barrel wedge that there is a small pin that runs through the barrel.  That is to hold the barrel on the cylinder pin.  The end of the original cylinder pin broke off.  It is amazing that the original wedge stayed with the gun.  The hammer still cocks and the locking bolt engages but the cylinder hand, if there is one, no longer rotates the cylinder.  Amazingly, the bore is fairly decent in the gun and still has clear and distinct rifling.  This gun is not really a relic and could probably be cleaned up and straightened out.  I'd much rather have this than something somebody has been filing and buffing on.  SOLD!!
