    US Dragoon

    My US Dragoon serial # 12456, the muzzle of the canon is flat, probably a field repair.

    Nice example of a military issue Dragoon. Clear inspector’s marks, too.

    Mighty nice!

    ( I think the Muzzles of these may have been dead flat, and 'in the white'...)

    The 2nd Generation ones were so, anyway...

    Really nice Dragoon! I think Oyeboten is right. The 2nd Gen 1851 Navy and 3rd Model Dragoon I own have flat muzzles and in the white and I thought they were following the originals.

    I saw your comment "muzzle of the canon is flat, probably a field repair."

    All of my 3rd Model Dragoons have flat muzzles, and are not crowned as were the cartridge Colts.

    I once had a Colt 1860 Army with a crowned muzzle. But that gun showed evidence of being arsenal refinished, so the crown may have been applied to "clean up" a damaged (dinged up) muzzle.
