This attractive antique Box Lock Pistol is marked Bunney and London on the sides and the bottom of the barrel is stamped with English proof marks. Typically designed for easy concealment this pistol is a bit larger than many encountered with an overall length of 8". The screw barrel design allowed these tiny pistols great power due to the high compression achieved.

The .44 caliber smoothbore barrel has a small lug at the bottom for use with a barrel lug wrench, the lug wrench is now missing. Luckily the barrel on this example can still be unscrewed by hand. Remove the barrel to reveal the powder chamber in the threaded breech. The powder chamber would have been filled with black powder, and a nominally .450" diameter lead ball placed on the cupped end. The barrel would have been installed with a barrel wrench as the ball was compressed into the breech. The pan would then be primed.

The flat sided walnut grip has some scattered handling marks and a small crack near the action on both sides of the grip. The triggerguard slides for and aft and should activate a safety, but does not seem to be functioning correctly. The frizzen does spark well and the opens properly. This lock uses a 5/8" square English flint.
