2nd Gen Dragoon

Does anyone have information on 2nd gen. Colt Dragoons with case hardened frame and nickel barrel and cylinder? The one I am looking at has a serial no. GC41275.

The SN is probably GCA1275. It is one of the 94 Giuseppe Garibaldi freak dragoons that were made without the gold etching on the barrel and cylinder. The barrel and cylinder are in the white - not nickel plated. NIB value is around $800.

Thanks for the reply Mr. Fingers, I have never seen or handled an example of this pistol before. The finish really looked like nickel though when I picked it up, it must have been highly polished and looked as good as any nickel plate I have seen. I can get it for about $530.00. I got a light and looked inside the barrel and cylinder and they showed no signs of firing. You are right about the SN, I mistook the A for a 4.

$530 is a killer deal. Without the box and papers it's still worth $650. Congrats
