    C1800 English Thomas Jaques London .46” Bore Flintlock Pocket Pistol With Screw Off Barrel & Unusual Safety Catch. Sn 12796 - 12796

    Thomas Jaques was an English Gunmaker recorded as having premises at 20 Pitt Street, Tottenham Court Road, London between 1801 & 1802 (see page 173 of British Gunmakers Volume 1 by Brown). This is a nice Flintlock Pocket Pistol By Jaques. It is 6" overall with a 1 ½” screw off barrel which is .46” at the open muzzle. The left side of the pistol is engraved 'Jaques', the left 'London' both within foliate engraved decoration. The underside of the pistol has crisp proof marks. It has its original bag shaped wood grip fitted with void silver escutcheon. Its steel hammer is fitted with a flint and it has a concealed folding trigger & unusual sliding safety catch which is undamaged and functions correctly (the sliding safety bar has a pin end. The pin when pushed forward not only locks the hammer but also enters a purpose made hole in the pan lid which keeps the lid securely closed preventing exposure of gunpowder in the pan & accidental ignition or loss of the gunpowder. Many pistols with this type of safety catch are broken by owners, unaware of the feature, forcing the pan open and breaking the safety pin). Its action works as it should. 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 12796
