.44 Percussion

A Ruger Old Army .44 percussion revolver, blued steel and brass frame. Desirable first-year “Pre-warning” production. (It has no “Before Using Gun – Read Warnings in Instruction manual…” rollmark.) Factory black box with matching number. Has a low serial number: 140-0217X. Barrel is standard 7-1/2″ with ramped blade front sight & frame-mounted adjustable rear sight. Manufactured in 1972 (1st year) with blued grip frame that apparently was later replaced at the factory with a factory Dragoon style brass frame marked MR-3DB having same profile as frame used on Super Blackhawks. Brass frames factory fitted to some Blackhawks, Super Blackhawks & Old Army Models; per Dougan’s Book on Rugers that purportedly lists all brass frames as fitted by Ruger, this one was not listed. Accessories include a factory matching-numbered two-piece black and red box, customer portion of warranty card & two spare nipples. Box has slightly scuffed on edges but is not broken. Has a very good overall appearance. The brass frame has dulled, with age. Has a very light cylinder turn line and slight high point thinning most noticeable at muzzle. Near excellent bore & chambers. Very good oiled walnut grips w/ silver eagle medallions. Federally exempt. No FFL required. This model was discontinued in 2009, and they are getting scarce and collectible. (CGRU-098)

A now fairly scarce cased minty-condition United States Historical Society limited edition engraved Colt .44 Dragoon Royal Armories percussion revolver. It is in its original hardwood display case including a powder flask, bullet mold, primer tin, and nipple wrench. This is a nice pristine replica of the hefty Second Model Colt Dragoon. The engraved panel scene of “double eagles” (US Historical Society official logo) on left side of frame and the scroll engraving typical of early Colt revolvers. This gun is marked on the top barrel flat: “US HISTORICAL SOCIETY RICHMOND VA” and on left side of barrel: “THE ROYAL ARMORIES – H.M. TOWER OF LONDON”. These revolvers were originally sold by subscription for $2,250 each, in 1989. In a unique historical joint project, The Royal Armouries H.M. Tower of London authorized United States Historical Society in 1989 to produce and issue “The Royal Armouries Colonel Samuel Colt Dragoon” as a limited edition, to commemorate the Dragoon that was put on display at the Great Exhibition of 1851 in London. This gorgeous revolver is like-new retaining virtually all of its original finish with bright case colors, silver plating, and brilliant bright blue.
