Description

This is an unusual design for a flintlock pistol: it has a lever on the side which operates a kind of trap door between the two barrels and allows the powder from the flash pan to ignite either the top or bottom barrel, or both at the same time. It is unmarked as to a maker but has both provisional as well as final London proof marks. My guess is it dates from the late 18th century. The gun is functional, although the spring does not seem strong enough to create a spark on the frizzen. The frame is moderately pitted and shows an even brown patina, with most of the decorative engraving still visible. The grip is stained and covered in some sort of finish which makes it impossible to identify the wood underneath it. No serial number, rated very good overall.
