Colt Walker / Dragoon

Watching the old TV western, "Laramie", today, (Season 2, episode 12), noticed a set of what looked like Colt Walkers or maybe 2nd model Dragoons with extremely long barrels. Looked like 15+ inch barrels. Of course, I got all excited and started searching the internet for info on these revolvers. No luck, yet. Any ideas?

2nd dragoon had a 71/2 inch barrel walker 9 inch. Tv westerns and movies had nonexistent guns. No such thing commercially as the cut down rifle in wanted dead or alive and until the 1980s many westerns set in the 1870s had winchester 92s in them as they were available and cheaper than a vintage gun. I remember several b westerns where the cavalry used lever action rifles not springfields.

Someone put up a couple of Colt style dragoons with very long barrels. This interests me. I would like a link to info and photos. I have searched the Colt collectors forum, the websites of The Cody and NRA museums. Someone out there knows about these revolvers. The search continues.
