    ~ Early 19th Century Percussion Double Barrel Turn Over Pistol ~


    Here we have a very interesting pistol, a turn over double barrel percussion pistol.

    This was a very curious but short lived manner of creating multifiring firearms in the late 18th and 19th century, so whilst some gunsmiths were experimenting with pepperboxes, barrel selectors and other various methods this was trialled and marketed as an option.

    The pistol is for all intents and purposes a 19th century percussion cap pocket pistol except for the barrels, the barrels are on a revolving and locking screw so when you have fired one you have to grasp the barrels of the pistol and rotate them manually.

    The barrels are screw on for a simple reloading process.

    The trigger is a folding one that gets pushed out when the pistol is cocked.

    The rotating barrels are held in place by a pin and held steady by what appears to be a spring. The percussion cap is either held in place under the hammer or it is held by an additional section of metal to cover the base of the unused percussion nipple.

    The grips of this pistol appear to be polished walnut, the body and barrels all bear Birmingham proof marks. The steel is engraved and towards the back of the grip there is a small silver mark.

    There is no makers mark.

    ~ Dimensions ~

    The barrels are 2.75 inches (7cm) long.

    The pistol is 8 inches ( 20 cm) long.

    The pistol weighs 345 g.

    ~ Condition ~

    The pistol is in good condition for its age.

    There are some minor cosmetic marks to the wood and the metalwork.

    The pistols mechanisms all appear to be in working order.

    ~ Postage ~

    UK postage is £18 or it can be inspected in our shop.
