Cimarron Whitneyvilled Dragoon Percussion Revolver .44 Cal 7.5" Barrel Case Hardened Stee; B/S Brass T/G Walnut Grip Standard Blue Finish CA083
Rated among the most desirable and rarest of Colts with only around 240 produced and an estimated 10 percent of originals surviving, the Whitneyville was the first revolver manufactured in Hartford, Connecticut by Sam Colt. This .44 six-shooter, turned out in late 1847, featured several improvements over the Walker model such as a shortened cylinder, the barrel was reduced to 7 1/2 inches, the barrel wedge entered from the left side of the shortened barrel lug, and a loading lever latch was added. The Whitneyville was a desirable weapon then as now with both the military and civilian market, especially on the frontier and by the top military men of the day, like General Zachary Taylor!
Cimarron has produced a spitting image copy of this rare and collectible revolver, complete in every aspect, from its early Walker-style flared bottomed, oiled walnut grip and square back brass trigger guard and back strap, to its part octagon/part round richly blued 7 1/2-inch barrel, trigger and cylinder with the Walker-pattern "Ranger and Indian" roll engraved scene, and the color case hardened frame, hammer and loading lever.
