Uberti-Prestige-Dragoon-1.JPG

This is a 47% scale miniature Colt "Prestige Edition" 1848 first model Dragoon percussion revolver made by Uberti in Italy.  6 3/8" long overall with a 3 1/2" rifled part round part octagon barrel.  This piece is profusely engraved with about 65% coverage and beautifully accented with gold wire inlays  The frame, hammer, loading lever and rammer are beautifully case colored.  The balance of the steel parts are blued.  Brass triggerguard, one piece rosewood grips.  The serial number 88 is stamped into the bottom of the backstrap, frame, triggerguard, and barrel lug.  The cylinder roll stamped with the proper Ormsby cavalry and Indian battle scene and marked "MODEL U.S.M.R., COLT'S PATENT".   Early style loading lever latch.  Blue blade type front sight.  Checkered hammer spur, the hammer with the typical four clicks when cocked.  The bottom of the barrel roll stamped "A. Uberti, Italy" on the bottom of the barrel under the loading lever, and is only visible when the loading lever is lowered.  These dragoons were the last miniature Colt revolvers Uberti made, with production of less than 200 hundred pieces total, and probably less than five of these "Prestige Editions" made.  Complete with a period hinged top rosewood casing with key lock, key included.  The top with a centered inlaid yellow brass escutcheon.  The interior top and bottom padded and lined in a royal blue velour.  The case has a dust ledge.  The revolver is in mint condition.  The case I am told is a period Colt "Baby Dragoon" case that has be re-purposed for this revolver.  The velour on the sides of the interior bottom showing some fraying at the edges.  The Dragoons were the last new miniatures that Uberti made, just at the very end of their miniature production.  Standard blue and case colored models are very scarce, and there were probably less than 6 of these Prestige Editions ever made.

Banner Blank Pistol:

aus_Group a2b ivory

1-3/4"  OAL This gun is based on an Ives, cast iron, blank gun named "Banner".  The original, which dates from 1882, looks like an old cast iron Cap Gun but is actually a blank firing pistol.  On the original, the swing over breech cap had a nipple on the inside of the back plate,  which was slammed into the rimfire cartridge when the hammer struck it. 

I chose this gun because I wanted to offer a less expensive pistol.  The gun's simple design, its lack of plating,  or seperate grips all help keep the cost down. 

My version has been modified to use the 2mm pinfire cartridge.  It is solid cast brass, finished with brass black to give it an aged patina.  This gun is numbered on the back of the breech arm
