Mdl. 1848 Colt 'Baby Dragoon'
Mdl. 1848 Colt 'Baby Dragoon'

This is an exceedingly rare Colt pistol. In all my years of dealing in antique firearms, this is the first Colt  Baby Dragoon  conversion  I've ever seen.  Bruce McDowell's  " A Study of Colt Conversion and other Percussion Revolvers "  is lacking any examples .  It's serial # 6208 would indicate it was mfg.'d in 1848 . All the serial numbers  match and the action is very good with a strong main spring. A really great find !
