Third pistol from the left (or fist from the right)?
# Model?
# Caliber?
# Maker?

Not quite, Fingers.
Give it another try!
Here are two more pics.
They were taken four months later.

Wow, I'm stumped!

Looks like a cross between a Colt 1855 and a Remington NMA, with a S&W trigger guard. Whatever it is, it's WAAAY cool!

OK, I offer two more pictures.
These pics are actually of the only known prototype of the Colt 1855 Dragoon .44 cal. made in 1859/60.

OK guys and sorry for misleading you.
The pics presented in the first two threads are of the only replication recorded of the prototype of the Colt 1855 Root Dragoon in .44 cal.
The pistol or replica is currently a one on the kind.
Made from scratch in 2018/19.
It is proof tested by the Vienna proof house like all newly made guns.

Another pic of the replica of the Colt 1855 Root Dragoon prototype.
A pretty heavy beast!

I think it's awesome. Very sleek and elegant, even for a very large pistol.

I wouldn't mind having a pair for CAS.

Now that's a great idea! Serious style points right there.
