Walkers & Dragoons / Re: THE SEARCH IS ON 2nd model Dragoon.....

Hell, I bought two Dragoons within two months last year. How sick is THAT? (jh

Not near as sick as some - I only bought 3 Dragoons, a LeMat and pocket Navy last year.

OK I pulled the trigger, expect it to be here by next Friday.
Next time I ask for help.....please stop me.

I'm afraid the only help you can expect from this bunch, Chris, is choosing one over another.  Once you succumb you are doomed forever.    ($! ($!

As an aside - I've never had a problem buying from Gunbroker - everything I've ever gotten from a seller there has been exactly as described - or better.  The newly obtained Garibaldi Dragoon is an example of much better than described.  With that said, I ask questions and pass on iffy descriptions and lack of pictures.

I found out after I purchased this, that they were originally sold in a presentation case with belt buckle. I only got the pistol. If anyone knows of a case missing it's pistol, please let me know. I'd like to get an original case for it.

They were sold both ways,  pistols alone and pistols with presentation cases & accessories

And to think I thought you were the guy that wanted historical pistols.

Good luck for your collection, Fingers, You have more money than you know what to do with, and you are straying from a few years ago. Is this a new era?

Jim

Jim;

I still want historical pistols.  Nothing non-historical about this one.  'Ol Sam sent engraved & silver plated pistols to whoever could further his business.

I have changed he focus of my collection to 2nd Gens and SS Ubertis though; and expect to start with originals as well.  I'm also selling off some of the current collection.   

I'm just a poor civil service pensioner that has to watch his pennies.

No thanks.  If I want one in .36, I'll modify a Leech and Rigdon

Colt Custom shop made these in the early 90's (?)  Hand engraved and silver plated.  They made 100 of each, Army, Navy, Air Force, and Marine Corps commemoratives from 2nd Generation 1851 Navies.  This one is #7 of 100.  The Army one I have is #52 (?) of 100.  I would check it; but it's under a bunch of stuff in the safe.
