A nice military, single shot pistol. Well made, strong action. .54 caliber, 8& 1/2 " round barrel, 14" overall length. Lock is marked :" H. Aston, Midd.tn, Conn. 1850, and U.S.".All brass mountings, brass front sight , brass butt and trigger guard. Butt has numerous dings (see photo). Remember, this was a single shot so if there was not time to reload, the soldier would use it as a club. There is a captive or swivel ramrod. The lock, hammer, trigger and all screws are blued. The barrel has an even semi-dark pleaseing patina. The wood is in fine condition with only a few minor dings. There are no cartouches and no indication there ever were any, which was not uncommon.
This is an antique- no FFL needed.
I am liquidateing a large collection. Please see all listings under "ROMSEY" . All reasonable offers considered.
