    Description

    Martially Configured, Four Screw Frame, Cut for Shoulder Stock, Colt .44 Caliber Percussion Dragoon Revolver, #16536 matching. The front sight is a period replacement, the nipples have been replaced, and the grips, while correct, do not appear to be period, otherwise the gun is complete and original in every respect. Serial number visible on all parts, although the gun has been heavily cleaned. Barrel address and serial number, as well as the cylinder number, are weak but discernible. There is no remaining cylinder scene. Cylinder rotates correctly in conjunction with cocking the hammer but does not lock in place. Good bore, retains the original folding leaf rear sight. Brass trigger guard shows wear but very good with strong crisp number. It appears possible that the hammer spur has been broken and repaired. Despite the problems the gun shows very nicely and is one of only about 1200 guns produced with provisions for a shoulder stock. Good representative example of this scarce Colt.

    We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.
