C1840 Samuel Conway Stockport (Cheshire) 60 Bore Steel Box Lock Action Percussion Pocket Pistol With Steel Turn Off Barrel, Black Powder Proofs & Concealed Folding Trigger. Sn 18604 - 18604

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 a very good percussion pocket pistol by Conway. The pistol is 6” overall with a 1 ¾” screw off smoothbore round steel barrel. The bore has staining and residue consistent with age & use (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' within oval & has foliate decoration. The right ’Stockport’ within oval & has foliate decoration. It has a 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 walnut grip has no damage. The price 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 18604
