Description

C1810 English Smith London 54 Bore Round Action Flintlock Pistol With Steel Turn Off Barrel, Black Powder Proofs & Concealed Folding Trigger. Sn 18752 - 18752

There were many English gun makers named Smith operating in both London & the Provinces during the flintlock era. This is a very good flintlock pocket pistol made C1810. The pistol has a steel hammer, & folding concealed trigger. The brass frame is signed by the maker ‘Smith’ on one side alongside martial banners & arms panel. The reverse is signed ‘London’ alongside similar panel. The pistol measures 6” overall & has a 1½” screw off steel barrel (removal of the barrel requires a tool which we do not have). The barrel’s smooth bore has staining & residue consistent with age and use. The pistol has black powder proofs on the underside of the action. The pistol has an undamaged chequered bag shape walnut stock inlaid with diamond shape void silver escutcheon. The stock has a silver butt plate with light engraved decoration. The action has a safety bolt. The pistol’s action is strong. The price for this pistol worthy of further research regarding the maker includes UK delivery. NB No licence is required to own this antique flintlock pistol in the UK if retained as part of a collection or display. Sn 18752
