    ~ Circa 1850 British Man Stopper .72 Cal. Percussion Pistol ~


    This is a very fine and well made percussion 72 calibre coat pistol with brutal stopping power.

    This model is similar with two famous models produced in that era by the Harcourt family in England and by John Henry Deringer.

    A similar pistol, in fact, was found in one of the Ford theater's boxes in Washington, where on the evening of the 14th of April 1865, President Abraham Lincoln was deadly injured by John Wilkes Booth.

    The barrel of this pistol is stamped 'London'. It appears to be a simplified version oh the Harcourt family 1840 model.

    The pistol has steel fittings and an engraved lock and hammer with a walnut sack butt stock.

    It is fitted with its original ramrod.

    ~ Dimensions ~

    The barrel length is 4 inches (10.2 cm) and the overall length of the pistol is 9 inches (22.8 cm).

    It weighs 620 grams.

    ~ Condition ~

    The woodwork is excellent, a couple of hairline cracks to the right side forward of the lock plate.


    The lockplate and barrel have some pitting. The barrel is very smooth and clean inside.

    The man stopper half cocks, cocks and releases with a strong spring.

    ~ Postage ~

    UK postage is £18 or pistol can be collected from our shop in Portsmouth Historic Dockyard.
