I was thinking maybe the shoulder holster  Tongue

As soon as I do the coil spring conversion on the hand.

I have two Second Generation First Model Dragoons and I love them. I got them several years apart but the serial numbers are not that far apart. I plan on having one piece ivory grips put on them eventually.

Hey Kurt.  I'm guessing you're saying you have 13 of the 14 standard models; or do you mean the 60+ that includes all the limited editions.  You're right about never having too many.  I'm always on the lookout for one to fill my collection

Nice collection.  I have a pair of 1851s and 1861s that I use in CAS.  The '51s I used from about 2004 to 2007 when I started using a pair of '61s.  They all have a few thousand rounds through them.

A question for Mr. McGee:
Did Colt build any 2nd Gen 1860 Army's without the shoulder stock screws?

No.  All the second Gens are 4 screw frames with the shoulder stock cuts.
