1804 - 1820 English, Thomas Broomhead London Brass Frame 50 Bore Flintlock Pocket Pistol With Steel Screw Off Barrel. Sn 15551 - 15551

Thomas Broomhead was an English Gunsmith recorded as working in Birmingham at Whitall street 1804-1811 and new John Street 1820 (see page 180 of British gunmakers Vol 2 by Brown). He is known to have made firearms marked ‘London’ (see Howard L. Blackmore (1986) Gunmakers Of London, 1350-1850). This is an excellent, brass framed flintlock pistol by Broomhead London. It measures 7 ½” overall with a 2 ¾” screw off steel barrel. The barrel’s smooth bore has staining consistent with age and use. The barrel is removed by means of a tool which slides over the barrel and engages with a lug on the underside of the barrel and allows the barrel to be unscrewed (tool not available). The brass action is signed ‘Broomhead’ on the left side and the right ‘London’. The underside of the action has crisp proof marks. It has a steel swan neck hammer, sliding safety bolt and steel trigger guard. The pistol’s bag shaped wood grip is undamaged. The pistol cocks and dry fires perfectly. Price includes UK delivery. NB As an antique flintlock pistol no licence is required to own this item in the UK if retained as part of a collection or display. Sn 15551
