A real monster Review by Steve

I've owned one of these Dragoons in its earlier incarnation for nearly 40 years. The current version is more cleanly executed & delicate in its details than the one imported by Navy Arms long ago but both are properly described as robust and powerful. Uberti leaves off all of the extraneous markings - mine has a serial number & proofs but no other markings. This & the Walker are the only two black powder revolvers I would rely on to fend off a bear. I'll be buying a conversion cylinder in a week or two. (Posted on 7/17/2019)
