A pair of 2nd Gen 1861 Navies that have been worked over by Mike (Dragoon)

Thanks much Fingers!


Don't own any real Colts (Fingers got um all!!!) but my two converted Dragoons (Uberti/Kirst) are my most favorite revolvers of all.

My Favorite is the Dragoon.  Good power, balance, size and feel to the paw, it stays intact without beating itself up , ,

I have a Grey gen Whitneyville.  This is my favorite.  The cleanest feeling and firing is a Brown gen 3rd Dragoon.  The Whitneyville is my fave though.

My favorite is the Colt Throckmorton.

I don't care who you are, that there is funny! ( shamelessly stolen from Larry the Cable Guy )

Excluding the 1911,  my favorite Colt is incorrect in so many ways:

It is the 1851 Navy, ( steel frame of course) but in the historically incorrect .44 caliber and the neverwas 5" barrel with a dovetail blade front site.

To me the best part of the Colt Open Top design is that it is the "swiss army knife" of revolvers! One frame and cylinder can accomodate an entire suitcase of different barrels and grips!
