Uberti® Reproduction Colt® 1848 Dragoon 2nd Model .44 Black Powder Revolver honors the legendary original in fine style!
With a shorter barrel and cylinder, improved loading lever, and lighter overall weight, the 1st Model Colt® 1848 Dragoon fixed a number of problems with its predecessor - the famous 1847 Walker - while preserving its jaw-dropping power. The Dragoon Revolver was an instant hit, both with the U.S. Army's Mounted Rifles (known as "Dragoons") who adopted it as standard-issue, as well as civilians looking for peace of mind.
While the 1st Model Colt 1848 Dragoon Revolver solved a number of issues with its predecessor, it didn't stop Samuel Colt from further refining the classic Old West shooter. The 2nd Model Dragoon introduced rectangular notches and a square-back trigger guard.
The legend lives on with this faithful, premium-quality Reproduction. The way it looks, the way it shoots, the way it feels in your hand... it's all been beautifully preserved by Uberti®, the premier name in historical recreations. It's powerful and surprisingly accurate, an absolute hoot to shoot, and is guaranteed to impress as part of your collection. If you're looking to scratch your classic shooting itch, you will absolutely not be disappointed.The details:
