Early 1800’s English Hadley London 54 Bore Brass Flintlock Pistol With Black Powder Proofs & Turn Off Cannon Barrel. Sn 18906. - 18906

The only Hadley we can find working in London during the flintlock era is Moses Hadley who is recorded at 25 Ship Yard Temple Bar in 1818 (see page 165 of British Gunmakers Vol.1 by Brown). Other Hadley’s worked in London during the percussion era. This is an attractive brass flintlock pistol with turn off brass cannon barrel by Hadley of London. It is 8 ¼” overall with a 2 ½” screw off cannon barrel. The barrel’s smooth bore has just light staining consistent with age. It has crisp English black powder proofs on the underside of the action. The action is signed on one side ‘Hadley’ within banner on a field of engraved foliate decoration. The reverse is engraved ‘London’ within banner on a field of engraved foliate decoration. It has a steel hammer, frizzen, trigger guard and trigger. The action is strong. The bag shaped walnut grip is undamaged with just light bumps and bruises to be expected. The back of the grip is inlaid with silver oval disc engraved with 'E*E' monogram. The price 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 18906
