A heavy, solid military percussion pistol, converted from flintlock. The conversion was very neatly done, probably in a military arsenal. The brass has a nice patina and the rest of the metal may have been refurbished at the armory as it is clean and in excellent condition. The wood ( looks like walnut) is also in very good conditiom. There are a number of small dings but no splits, cracks or missing pieces. There is no makers mark but there is the number "280" on the left side-opposite the hammer.Probably an inventory or regimental number. There is also a proof mark on the trigger guard, another in the brass on the left side opposite the hammer and a "9" in the wood just above that. The action is very strong. There is a ramrod and a lanyard ring at the bottom of the grip and a front and rear sight. Overall, a nice piece.
Antique- No FFL required.
