    ~ A Circa 1800 Cased Pair Of Flintlock Duelling Pistols By James Richardson Of Manchester ~


    James Richardson was active 1790-1832 and also traded with a London shop.

    The flintlocks are of the regulation length with 9 inch octagonal barrels of 50 calibre (approx .62 inch) bores.

    The barrels have small blade foresights and v rearsights.

    The top barrel flats are enscribed with "MANCHESTER" and two private proof marks - a crown over 'P' and a crown over 'V' on the left barrel flat.

    The barrels are on the hooked breech system for ease of removal for cleaning etc.

    The bores are very clean, one of the two being almost unused.

    The locks both have a good strong working action, and are impressed with "RICHARDSON".

    The frizzen springs have been replaced at some time with two new blued ones.

    They have fullstocked woodwork with steel fittings and wooden ramrods.

    The butts have sharp chequering, again indicating little use, and steel butt caps.

    There are lots of sharp engravings to the breech joints, the barrel tangs, lockplates, frizzens, trigger guard with pineapple finale, ramrod hoops, screw heads, and butt caps.

    The pistols come with a dome headed wooden loading rod, musket balls, brass lozenge shaped powder flask graduated for 1-1 1/4-1 1/2 drams and a horn box containing two flints for the pistols.

    They are cased in a green baize lined oak box with military style brass reinforced corners.

    There is a clear brass escutchion on the lid and a good working lock and key.

    ~ Dimensions ~

    The flintlock pistols are 14.5 inches (36.8 cm) in overall length. The barrels length is 9 inches (22.8 cm).

    The case width is 18.3 inches (46.7 cm), a depth of 10.2 inches (26 cm) and a height 3 inches (7.5 cm).

    The set weighs 4.5 Kg.

    ~ Condition ~

    The set is in very good condition. The metalwork on both pistols has darkened, as expected but remains very clean and free of rust. The hammer of one of the pistols has a repaired crack in it.

    The woodwork is undamaged except for minor pits and some superficial cracks on the muzzle frame of one of the pistols.

    The powder flask has minor nicks but its general condition is good. Its spring works as intended.

    ~ Postage ~

    UK postage is £25 or it can be collected from our shop in Portsmouth Historic Dockyard.
