Encouraged by an ongoing military contract, Colt turned his eye toward the civilian market in 1848. Civilian pocket revolvers, such as the Baby Dragoon, Wells Fargo or 1849 Pocket, were .31 caliber pistols that fit easily in a coat pocket. The 1848 Baby Dragoon was the first pocket revolver made at Colt’s Hartford plant and was a smaller version of the .44 caliber Dragoon models. It has a one piece grip with European walnut stock and a steel frame, color case hardened. The barrel is a .31 caliber, blued, 4″, tapered octagon. Features a brass backstrap & round triggerguard. Color casehardened hammer, oval cylinder stop notches. The 5-shot cylinder is engraved w/stagecoach hold-up scene.
