Samuel Conway was an English Cheshire based Gunsmith. In 1840 he is recorded as having premises at 4 Middle Hillgate Stockport (see page 196 of Brown’s book British Gunmakers Vol.2). This is an excellent percussion pocket pistol by Conway. The pistol is 6 ½” overall with a 2” screw off smoothbore blued steel octagonal barrel. The bore is clean (a tool is required to remove the barrel, we do not have a tool). The left side of the German Silver action is crisply engraved 'Conway' on banner within foliate panel. The right ’Stockport’ on banner within foliate panel. It has a sliding safety bolt, folding concealed trigger and Dolphin hammer. The action is strong. It has crisp proof marks on the underside of the action and barrel. Its original, undamaged bag shaped walnut grip has no damage. The price for this nicely marked quality pistol includes UK delivery. NB As an antique percussion pistol no licence is required to own this item in the UK if retained as a part of a collection or display. Sn 18603
