Our old neighbors had a ‘62 Corvette exactly like that ! Same color and interior !

Shooting a Dragoon or an 1860 Army, same thing. One, given the time, place or mood, is just much more fun. And then there is the cool factor. :cool: :cool: :cool:

Do loading levers commonly drop on a 3rd model? I thought the catch had corrected that.

The Whitneyville, first and second models all share the same loading lever latch (the rocking style) while the third model has a latch like the 1851 Navy. Uberti doesn't seem to have caught on to that though.

I have a Uberti 3rd model Dragoon that was worked over by Mike Brackett (Goons gunsmithing), and it is one of my prized possessions. I use 45 grains 3F and a .457 roundball. Really fun to shoot, and quite accurate. Mike put a strong spring in the lever so it does not drop down.

I have a third model a project gun. When finished it will be a three or thereabout inch barrel snubby with a fluted cylinder.
All I have to do is cure the Uberti short arbor and wack off the barrel and cut a front sight dovetail. The cylinder is done don't ask how.
Perhaps this summer when it is too hot to shoot.
