Shooting the big iron - Colt's 3rd Model Dragoon
The Third Model Dragoon is said to have been Samuel Colt's favorite sixgun. There is a lot to like about this big horse pistol. In this video we'll show you how to load and fire the Dragoon with both round balls and conical bullets. Uberti in Italy manufactures this replica and Taylor's & Co. in Winchester, Virginia imports it into the United States. It is a big piece of iron, but fun to shoot.

Awesome gun.
Do you have any issue with the rod dropping on you when you shoot it? Seems to be a common issue.

I've had that problem on other 3rd Dragoons, but it has not happened on this one.
