U.S. Colt Paterson Dragoon Replica Revolver with 9 Inch Barrel - Old Italian Reproduction

Regular price $2,495.00

Item Description

Original Item: Only One Available. We got pretty excited on hearing about this, it was found in a safe an believed to be a genuine Colt Patterson, well upon further inspection we realized it was not a Colt but a very high quality early (1970s) fully functional reproduction. It is correct in nearly every detail, the thing that gives it away is the crispness of the cylinder scene but otherwise you could full most people at least until a closer look is requested! Pistol is offer in very good condition and shows some age/wear which we think was done intentionally to make it appear older. It was well done, because it does have a period look.

*As a reproduction of a black powder antique gun, in the United States this item falls under the legal definition of antique firearm and can be sold without an FFL transfer.

History of the Colt Paterson:

The Colt Paterson revolver was the first commercial repeating firearm employing a revolving cylinder with multiple chambers aligned with a single, stationary barrel. Its design was patented by Samuel Colt on February 25, 1836, in the United States, France, and England, and it derived its name from being produced in Paterson, New Jersey. Initially this 5-shot revolver was produced in .28 caliber, with a .36 caliber model following a year later. As originally designed and produced, no loading lever was included with the revolver; a user had to disassemble the revolver partially to re-load it. Starting in 1839, however, a reloading lever and a capping window were incorporated into the design, allowing reloading without requiring partial disassembly of the revolver. This loading lever and capping window design change was also incorporated after the fact into most Colt Paterson revolvers that had been produced from 1836 until 1839. Unlike later revolvers, a folding trigger was incorporated into the Colt Paterson. The trigger only became visible upon cocking the hammer.
