Description

Late 1700’s, English Wilson London Queen Anne Style Flintlock Pistol With .600" Calibre Screw Off Cannon Barrel & Cudgel Butt. Sn 16246 - 16246

This is an excellent English flintlock pistol in the Queen Anne style made sometime in the late 1700’s. It is 12” overall length with 6 ¾”, .600” calibre screw off cannon barrel. The barrel’s bore has staining and residue consistent with age & use. The barrel block has crisp black powder proofs and is signed ‘London’. The action is signed by the maker ‘Wilson’ (most likely William Wilson, a London gunmaker recorded as working at 154 Minories 1767-85 as William Wilson & Co, then as William Wilson alone 1786-93 until when he is then recorded as working as William Wilson & Son 1794-1808 when he then reverts to William Wilson 1809-1832, see page 215 of Vol 1 British Gunmakers by Brown) . The pistol has a Swan neck hammer. The pistol’s cocking and firing mechanism works as it should with a crisp action. It’s original walnut stock is excellent & undamaged. The stock has a heavy steel cudgel butt with tooled decoration that could be used as a striking weapon. The price includes UK delivery. NB As 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 16246
