Offered is a made in London England circa 1850 Westwood London back action percussion coat pocket pistol with a 5 inch smooth bore barrrel in apx 40 caliber (overall length is apx 8.5 inches). This pistol has nicely engraved silver mountings, screws, barrel tang and breech , bluing is original and is strong on the lock, barrel appears to have faded Damacus browning? Case hardening is still strong on back strap and evident on hammer. Silver estrunchon on the back strap is not monogramed, Lock mechanism is tight in both half and full cock,.bore is bright and shiny. Stock checkering is still sharp. Not pictured is little Percussion Cap holder at the bottom of the pistol grip that is hinged. The only flaw that I can see is a small crack in the wood coming off the left side of the barrel going into the lock screw on the left side and continuing on, total length of the crack including the width of the screw (.375 inch) is 1 inch. At this point in time it is a moot issue as this pistol is not likely to be put into use. Overall a beautiful example of the 19th century British firearms trade that is priced right for quality and condition. This pistol is an antique which requires no FFL. Buyer pays for shipping, I will send this USPS Priority Flat Medium Rate plus full insurance. If paid with USPS MO I will usually ship within 24 hours all other forms will have to clear. Please ask any questions that you might have, there is always something that I forget to mention?
