    1841 -1850 English John Witton City Of London Steel Frame 17 Bore Overcoat Pistol With Octagonal Barrel & Captive Ramrod. Sn 13836 - 13836

    The English Gunsmith John Witton is recorded as having premises at 82 Old Broad Street, City Of London between 1841 & 1850 (see page 216 of British Gunmakers Vol.1 by Brown). This is an excellent steel framed percussion overcoat pistol by John Witton. It is 8 ½” overall length with a 3 ½” octagonal brown wash steel barrel. The barrel’s smoothbore has just light staining consistent with age, but no pitting and it measures .650” muzzle diameter (17 bore). The top of the barrel is faintly signed ‘Witton 82 Old Broad St, City Of London’. The action, Dolphin hammer, trigger guard and pommel cap have fine foliate engraved decoration. It has a bead fore sight, ‘v’ notch rear sight and captive steel ram rod. The action works as it should with a strong spring action. The Walnut grip with fine chequering is excellent & undamaged. The back of the grip is inlaid with void German Silver escutcheon. 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 13836
