    Uberti Whitneyville Dragoon

    Hello to all!

    I am looking for information about a certain "flavor" of this revolver. The Uberti USA site shows the revolver with only the end of the hammer screw showing on the right side of the frame, whereas the trigger and bolt screw ends do not show, telling me that they are in "blind" holes and Uberti had to use an end tap to achieve threading on the right side of the frame.

    This is historically correct.

    I have emailed Uberti USA and their reply is that Taylor's is the importer of these guns. I have an email inquiry in to Taylor's and awaiting a response.

    Any Uberti Whitneyville Dragoon I have seen for sale (Midway, et al) have all three screw ends showing.








    In the interim period, does anyone here have one such as I am describing, or have seen a real example of one?

    Thanks in advance!

    Regards,

    Jim

    Taylor's website shows the three screws protruding.

    That is a 3rd Model Dragoon, not a Whitneyville.

    Here is a picture of a Colt 3rd generation Whitneyville Dragoon - Marine 'Semper Fideles' model with the non-protruding screws. Since the 3rd generation uses Uberti parts, it may be that the early Uberti Whitneyville Dragoons had the hidden screws and the current models have the screws that show.

    As an additional note, and iaw "The Russell Guide," the 3rd generation Whitneyville Dragoons (standard model) had 4 types. Type 1 had the screws showing. Types 2, 3, and 4, did not.

    Colt made about 240 Whitneyville Hartford Dragoons in two different types. Type I looks like Colt used up left over frames, BSs and TGs from the Walker. These frames have only the hammer screw protruding through. Type II has the same frame contour as the 1st Model Dragoon with all three screw protruding through. These models have only the TG in the contour of the Walker BS is also like the 1st Model Dragoon.
    In these two pictures you can see the differences between Type one and Type II

    In these screen shots from Dennis Russels book you can see what gunner5 has said about the 3rd Generation pistols
