The Arvirar Percussion Dragoon Revolver is a .44 caliber revolver designed by Winslow Kensington for the Arvirar Royal Mounted Rifles, also known as "Dragoons". This revolver was designed as a solution to numerous problems encountered with the Kensington Model 9 Revolver.

Though made obsolete by the much-more-advanced Tagan Thunderhorse .45 in 1881, many civilians and some military personnel still preferred the older, heavier Dragoon for its greater reliability over the complicated mechanisms of the Thunderhorse. A popular adage amongst Dragoon fans was "If it doesn't work, you can always hit him with it."


There were two primary variants of the Dragoon, the Mk1 and the Mk2.

The Mk1 Dragoon Revolver has oval-shaped cylinder notches, a V-type mainspring, no wheel on the rear of the hammer, no pins between the nipples on the cylinder and a squareback triggerguard. The Arvirar Royal Armory produced about 7,000 first models between 1846 and 1848.

The Mk2 was released after the Unification by the new Fanaglian Royal Armory and has rectangular cylinder notches. For the first 10,000 guns, a V-shaped mainspring was standard and then replaced with a flat leaf mainspring and a wheel on the hammer at its bearing on the mainspring. All the Second Model Dragoons have the round triggerguard. Some of the Mk 2 Dragoon Revolvers had frame cuts for detachable shoulder stocks, horizontal loading lever latches and folding leaf sights.
