To me the most significant differences are:

The Whitneyville-Hartford Dragoon has a more slender grip that the 1st, 2nd and 3rd Dragoon's.

The Whitneyville-Hartford and the 1st Dragoon's have a V-shaped mainspring while the 2nd and 3rd Dragoon's have the flat mainspring. The flat mainspring is significantly easier to deal with during reassembly. If you do want a Whitneyville-Hartford or 1st Dragoon get a Walker style nipple wrench. They were made specifically as a multi-tool for the V-Spring.

Right on with the Whitneyville (a/k/a the Transition Dragoon) with the slender, Walker style grips. To me the Whit' is like having a Walker with a shortened cylinder, barrel, and a locking loading lever. Wedge also goes left to right as in all other Colt cappers vs the Walkers right to left. I like the grips.

Reference the mainsprings yer right with the Whit' and original 1st Model Dragoon having the same V mainspring as the Walker. Info relating to Colts 2nd Model always indicated that the 2nd Model had a changeover from Colts V to a leaf mainspring. The Whit' still has the V spring, but have read a number of times by writers and sellers that Uberti standardized the 1st Model Dragoon having the same leaf spring as in the 2nd and 3rd models for manufacturing simplicity. Cimarron in their 1st Model description mentions in their 1st Model specs as the Uberti 1st Model having the leaf as in the 2nd and 3rd. Numrich in parts for the Uberti 1st model just lists the leaf (same number if ordering for the 2nd and 3rd Models. I've never noticed much of a difference between my V spring Whitneyville and leaf spring Dragoon in shooting.
