I stopped a the LGS today where they recently took in two, what I believe to be 2nd Generation Colt Dragoons. I tried using the Colt serial number look up website to see if they provided any information on them but the results showed original 1849 pockets and some other percussion revolvers but no Dragoons. Are the sn's for 2nd Generation revolvers in that database? They say Colt's on them and there are no visible Italian proof marks or other marks that might indicate totally foreign copies. Sadly, both revolvers had been cleaned to sort of bright and the brass parts buffed - maybe a bit of pitting here and there as well. At first I thought they might be stainless steel (and maybe they are - I don't know if Colt offered them in that material) but think they are carbon steel. Mechanically good and tight and would certainly make good shooters. What would folks think these might be worth? $300/$400? I may be able to stop by there tomorrow and take a picture.
