That is one of the finest cased Dragoons I've ever seen, Fingers.

Here, from my collection, are the most produced revolvers by the Confederacy:

Top to bottom, Griswold & Gunnison by Pietta, (approx. 3,700); Leech & Rigdon by Uberti, (approx. 2,500 incl Rigdon & Ansley); Spiller & Burr by Pietta, (approx. 1,400); J. H. Dance & Bros by Pietta, (approx. 364 plus 136 .36 cal.)

Little by little I am entering the collectors roll.The reason I picked this post, is that I am working on
obtaining the  same four Confederate revolvers as shown in Rcampb photo.
Not quite there yet, but getting close.

Well, Hewy, after that you need a Schneider and Glassick, an Augusta Machine Works, a Columbus Fire Arms Mfg. Co., a Rigdon and Ansley (12 bolt stops), a George Todd, a Tucker, Sherrard, and Company, and others.

Just trying to help adjust your bank account to Make America Green Again!

 ;)

Or, you can cheat (like I did) and use 3 different Pietta 1851 Navy Type .36 pistols (1851 Second Model, 1851 Third Model, and G&G) to create 5 different "historical" replicas (to add a S&G and a L&R) and many fantasy pistols by swapping barrels, cylinders and frames with no tools required.

My favorite Pietta fantasy pistol: 1851 Navy Second Model Dragoon .36 (using the Second Model steel frame/SB trigger guard and the G&G barrel/cylinder). I still think that Colt should have manufactured this while still marketing SB trigger guards:



We all have to admit that I am doing no service (when I die) to future replica collectors when they acquire my Pietta S&G and L&R and cannot find any reference to Pietta making these models (so far). If one wants to brown formerly blued parts (as in creating a George Todd) sobeit, but I disdain anyone defarbing an original replica so as to create something that may be construed as a true original. To me, that is not what replica collecting is all about.

Just my $.02 worth.

Happy hunting and modifying replicas to fit.

Yep, that stimulates me too.  The Great Seal of the US on that is a nice touch and fits real well.
