A high quality flintlock officers pistol believed to have been made by William Dury of Liverpool, England, circa 1820-1840. It displays a high level of workmanship as to the metal and woodwork. The "Dury" name appears on the lock ( a little hard to see). It has a heavy 7 & 1/2 " octogon barrel , .62 caliber (20 bore) with an overall length of 12 & 1/2 ".All of the metal appears to have been finished in a deep brown and about 90 to 95% remains. There is a full walnut stock with fine checkering in the grip area. The metal is in excellent condition with a rub mark on the left side of the barrel near the barrel end and a sharp eye will find a few other very minor marks here and there. The wood is also in excellent condition with a few minor marks on the left side in the grip area, a small professioal repair on the left side at the barrel end and a hairline crack on the right side at the barrel end (hard to see). The ramrod looks original and has a metal end and a so called "worm" at the other end to aid in its intended use. The action is very strong and it holds on half and full cock. There are two proof marks on the left side of the barrel opposite the hammer believed to be English marks used in the Royal Armory. The trigger guard, lock, barrel tang and hammer are engraved.
The overall condition of this pistol would be " Antique Excellent". A fine addition to a collector of quality.
