A nice military flintlock pistol made by A. Waters. This is a model 1836 and is dated on the lock "1838". The action is very strong and the hammer holds at full and half cock. A total of 20,000 of this model were made by the Waters firm between 1837 and 1843. It has a .56 caliber round bright steel 8 & 1/2 inch barrel.There is one very visible cartouch stamped on the left side of the stock. There is a front and rear sight. All metal is bright steel with some minor evidence of pitting. The wood is sound with some staining and some minor loss of wood on the left side opposite the lock and a small repair (or staining) on top near the hammer. The overall length is about 14 inches. The top of the barrel is marked "U.S.","JH", and "P". This pistol should rate as "FINE".
This is an antique- no FFL is required. It can be sent directly to a new owner. Flintlocks, particularly military pistols , are gaining rapidly in value.
Note: This pistol was listed inadvertently a second time under #100632900.
