Project Description

This is a 47% scale Engraved & Gold Wire Inlaid Prestige Edition Colt Whitneyville Walker Dragoon by the renown A. Uberti in Italy.   The Whitneyville-Hartford Dragoons are a transition model between the Colt Walkers and the First Model Dragoons, and differ from the first model Dragoons in the angle where the triggerguard meets the grips, and the fact that they have only one safety pin on the back of the cylinder.  6 1/2″ long overall with a 3 1/2″ part round part octagon rifled barrel of .21 caliber.  Charcoal blue and case colored finish.  Profusely engraved and gold wire inlaid, these Prestige Edition revolvers were the very best that Uberti ever offered, and are quite rare.  I’d guess there are no more than a half dozen of these Prestige edition Colt Dragoons were ever made, as the Colt Dragoons were the last miniatures produced by Uberti at the very tail end of their miniature production.  This is only the second of the Prestige Colt Dragoons I have ever seen, in over 25 years in the business.  The frame, barrel lug, hammer, triggerguard, backstrap, and loading lever are all engraved.  There are gold wire inlays at the muzzle of the barrel, outlining  the barrel lug, frame, recoil shield, hammer, loading lever, and backstrap.  The quality of the engraving and gold inlay are absolutely fantastic!  Beautifully figured one piece rosewood grip.  The cylinder with the standard Ormsby Texas Rangers and Indians Battle roll marked cylinder scene, plus the nipple cutouts and cylinder stops are outlined in gold wire.  Serial number 80 stamped into the bottom of the frame, barrel, triggerguard, and backstrap.  The underside of the barrel marked “A. UBERTI ITALY”.  The revolver remains in perfect mint condition.  An extremely rare and beautiful Uberti miniature Colt!!!  Price:  $2,250.00.
