1848 Colt
1848 Colt "Baby Dragoon"

This Colt Baby Dragoon  was manufactured in 1849  at the start of the California Gold Rush. It's in very good condition with sharp edges and pronounced stampings. All the serial numbers (11256)  match including the wedge and arbor pin. The pistol has taken on a beautiful even chocolate brown patina. The cyl. scene is mostly gone but still has a visible Colt's Patent and serial number. The grips are very good with a lot of their original finish . The back strap and trigger guard retain about 80% of their original factory nickel finish. All in all a pretty nice looking pistol.
