One of a kind Pocket Model
« on: June 29, 2020, 05:21:59 PM »
Here is a pocket model unlike any you've seen before, that I got from Rock Island Auctions.  It is an unfired Uberti 1848 Baby Dragoon with a 4 inch barrel, made in 2003, in the white (NOT Stainless Steel) from the factory with original box and papers.  You might say it is New in the Box.  There are no markings on the frame other than the serial number and date code. The barrel has 2 proof marks on the right side, serial number on the bottom of the lug; and " Cal .31 Black Powder Only, Made in Italy " on the underside of the barrel.  Could have been a special order by Taylor's. (?)  All of the markings; with the exception of the two stamped serial numbers; are very faint and could be eliminated easily.  Could this pistol been destined for some fancy engraving?

Found out that another one of these was sold by October Company as part of Dr. Davis' collection
