Item No.: 8619 Price : $1,395.00
Item : FINE, ENGLISH BRASS BARREL FLINTLOCK PISTOL, .60 CAL.
Description :
This is a brass mounted, brass barreled, English Flintlock Pistol of about .60 caliber. It probably dates to about 1810. The barrel is proofed and stamped "LONDON" on top. The lock is simply marked "WARRANTED". The round barrel is 7 3/4" long, tapering towards the middle and then flaring slightly at the muzzle. There is a brass thumb piece, and the pistol has some simple, basic line engraving. The gun is in fine condition. The brass has a beautiful, golden brass patina. The lock appears to have been blued and it retains about 60% of its finish. The pistol has excellent mechanics. The smooth bore is dark and shows some pitting of the brass. The stock, finished dark and then varnished is in very good to fine condition. There are a number of small dings and scrapes, especially along the edges of the lock and side plate panels. The original dark finish makes these scrapes stand out a bit more than usual. There is a small chip at the back of the lock mortise and a tiny chip on the left side at the edge of the butt cap. There is one more along the right side of the barrel channel, near the muzzle. The pistol retains its original, shaped ramrod. Surprisingly, it is made of iron and has a smooth brown patina. This is a fine old English flintlock. I have always loved brass barreled guns. Stock no. 22854
