This Third Model Colt Dragoon in .44 black powder revolver was manufactured in 1976. This Dragoon has a 7 1/2 inch barrel with a blade front sight and notched hammer for the rear sight. The cylinder is fully engraved with scenes of men on horse back and states "MODEL U.S.M.R." "COLT_S PATENT". The frame and hammer shows brilliant case colors with a brass sub-frame. This Dragoon remains in excellent, unfired condition. I do have the pictured paper work, but no box remains.
