Item No.: 7974 Price : SOLD
Item : U.S. MODEL 1842 PERCUSSION PISTOL BY "H. ASTON"
Description :
Here is an original, U.S. Model 1842 Percussion single shot pistol manufactured by Henry Aston of Middletown, Ct. It is a .54 caliber smooth bore with an 8 1/2" round barrel. The M1842 was the last smooth bore pistol adopted by the U.S. military. This one is in antique good condition. All the parts are original. The iron parts of the pistol have some significant pitting, giving it a mottled steel and dark brown appearance. The bore is dark and crusty. The brass furniture has a yellow bronze patina. The stock has the usual dings and scratches from use. The markings are mostly obscured by pitting, but I believe the lock is dated 1849. This is no museum piece, but it is a good representation of the type. Stock no. 20990
