C1840 Cased Pair Of B. Guest London 50 Bore Flintlock Pocket Pistols With English Proofs, Turn Off Barrels & Accessories. Sn 18380 - 18380

This is an excellent pair of steel framed percussion pistols made C1840. Each pistol measures 6 ¼” overall and have 1 ¾”screw off steel barrels. The barrel’s smooth bores have staining and residue consistent with age and use. The actions are signed ‘B.Guest’ within banners & arms on the left side (unknown maker or retailer) and the right ‘London’ within banners & arms. The underside of their frames & barrels have crisp English proofs. They have hammers and steel trigger guards. The pistols have bag shaped wood grips. The pistols cock and dry fire as they should. The pistols are complete with polished mahogany case. The case with hinged lid measures 10 ¾” x 6” x 2 ½”. The case has a brass clasp fastener. The inside of the case is re-fitted at some time in its life with red felt & contoured to snugly fit the pistols and their accessories. The compartments contain: a small quantity of moulded lead balls which are a larger calibre than the pistols but are nice for display, a small quantity of percussion caps (untested most likely inert), an empty brass powder flask with sprung nuzzle & a white metal oil container with screw top lid and integral applicator. The price for this pair of cased percussion pistols worthy of further research regarding the maker includes UK delivery. NB As antique percussion pistols no licence is required to own them in the UK if retained as part of a collection or display. Sn 18380
