I would be proud to own one like that. hard part is getting powder and caps these days.
Nope, not a Dragoon. Appears to be an 1849 Pocket.
What a beautiful handful. My LCP is beautiful cause it's in my pocket with a belly full of boolits!
Looks like an Colt 1851 London model. The 1860 army based on the '51 frame with an enlarged cylinder and much better grip is ,IMHO , one of the nicest balanced revolvers ever made .
