36-caliber frame. 44 Dragoon. Colt accomplished this feat by making use of a new rebated or stepped cylinder design. 31-caliber frame. All the above models retained that same, incredibly reliable internal action mechanism introduced with the Model 1848 Baby Dragoon. Modern day revolver aficionados will quickly recognize that the actions used in all these previous percussion revolvers are pretty much identical to that of the more familiar Colt Single Action Army of 1873. That’s right, William Mason, the designer of the Peacemaker, knew a good thing when he saw it.

William Mason’s patented ejector was also used on the Open-Top, just as it had been on the former Richards-Mason conversions, and was fastened through the barrel’s underlug in the same manner as the former. The new Uberti replicas as offered by Cimarron Firearms are available in several centerfire calibers, including the popular 44 S&W Special. Unlike the original Colt Open-Top, the Uberti’s hammer is equipped with a unique safety device. The safety is manually operated after placing the hammer at half-cock by turning a screw on the hammer side.
