Order Quantity:
This antique English pistol features an 9" tapered round brass barrel, walnut stock, limited brass furniture, and percussion lock. This pistol is the sort commonly found on the commercial market and used as trade pistols. The hammer appears to be an old replacement.

The 9" brass, tapered round barrel is smooth bore with a .565" diameter bore. The bore is dark and rough. The barrel is fitted with a small bead front sight, no rear sight is fitted.

The 4-1/2" lock is unmarked as to a maker. This percussion lock has only a single position tumbler, which is very common on mid 18th century percussion locks.
The 9" brass barrel has a tapered flat at the breech. The side of the breech is stamped with post-1813 Birmingham view and proof marks. Not a target pistol, the barrel has no front or rear sight, and this pistol was intended for use at close range for personal defense.
The brass triggerguard is a very simple design and is screw mounted to the stock. A brass buttcap protects the end grain of the stock. The wooden ramrod is retained by a single round brass ramrod pipe with raised thumbnail and tapered skirt.
A single lock bolt with no sideplate secures the lock to the stock. The walnut stock has many dents, dings, and handling marks, but no cracks or repairs.
