A nice English TOWER percussion military pistol finished in a dark brown military finish. About 85 to 90% + of the finish remains. This is a heavy (over 2 & 1/2 pounds) pistol with a lanyard ring, a ramrod , a front and rear sight , a solid wood stock with a few dings and one small repair near the top of the lock on the right side. The action is very strong. The hammer holds on full and half cock. The percussion cap is in good condition. The lock is plainly marked "Tower" and " 1878" the year of manufacture.. There is a proof mark at the rear of the lock: " a Crown over a V , a Star and an R".There are also marks on the forward part of the trigger guard, on the metal plate on the left side and 3 numbers on the left side of the barrel opposite the hammer. The barrel is round, 8 & 1/2" long and .62 in caliber. The overall length is 14 & 1/2".
This is an antique so no FFL is required. It may be sent directly to the new owner.
