Description

1829-1857 English William Egan Bradford Yorkshire Steel Frame 17 Bore Belt Pistol With Octagonal Barrel & Captive Ramrod. Sn 14041 - 14041

The English Gunsmith William Egan is recorded as having premises at Hustler Gate, Bradford, Yorkshire between 1829 & 1857 (see page 214 of British Gunmakers Vol.2 by Brown). This is an excellent steel framed percussion belt pistol by Egan. It is 10 ½” overall length with a 5 ¾” octagonal brown wash steel barrel which has black powder proofs. The barrel’s smoothbore has just light staining consistent with age. It measures 16.45mm muzzle diameter which is approx. 17 bore. The top of the barrel is crisply signed ‘Egan Bradford’. The action, Dolphin hammer, trigger guard and pommel cap with hinged trap have fine foliate engraved decoration. It has a brass bead fore sight, ‘v’ notch plate 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 14041
