Description

C1810 English Parr London 50 Bore Flintlock Pocket Pistol With Brass Action, Steel Turn Off Barrel, Black Powder Proofs. Sn 18748 - 18748

This is a very good flintlock pocket pistol. The pistol is 6” overall with a 1 ½” screw off smoothbore round steel barrel. The smoothbore is clean. The left side of the brass action is crisply engraved 'Parr' within oval & has martial banners and arms decoration (there were a few gunmakers named Parr in the provinces but we cannot find any Parr working as a gunmaker in London nor any provincial gunmaker named Parr who marked his guns ‘Parr London’ during the flintlock era). The right ’London’ within oval & has martial banners and arms decoration. It has a steel hammer and the steel trigger guard is decorated with a stylised star. The action is strong. It has crisp proof marks on the underside of the action. Its original, undamaged walnut grip has no damage. The action has a sliding safety bolt. The price for this pistol worthy of further research regarding the maker includes UK delivery. NB As an antique flintlock pistol no licence is required to own this item in the UK if retained as a part of a collection or display. Sn 18748
