I Really like this Imperial Russian "Dragoon". It looks like the Tula Russian Gunsmiths , improved on Colts Dragoon. With a 1851/60 Loading lever latch, easy removable (Screw) grip panels, Longer Cylinder and Longer Barrel then Colt Dragoon. Do others  here see the Barrel and Cylinder Longer then Colt Dragoon and possibly as long as a Walker?
I also wonder what type of Rifling it has and what style of projectile the mold makes. I guess one would have to visit St Petersburg Russia, The Hermitage Museum for further info.I have asked Pietta to make a firing copy of this beauty, I hope that they do so.

Colt sold achinery to the Russians to produce his style revolvers I would assume that the rifling matches his guns (if he sold thm rifling equipment)
