    British Percussion Over/Under Swivel Breech Pocket Pistol. Marked "1" and "2" at the rear of the 2 1/2" .44 caliber rifled barrels. The gun is overall 6 1/4". The frame, rear of the barrel assembly, and base of the trigger guard show period engraving with the maker, "EGAN / BRADFORD" engraved on the barrel tang. An oval escutcheon on the finely checkered wrist is engraved "A B HEMP", doubtless the original owner's name. The barrels and frame are now clean with some minor wear to the engraving. Folding trigger a bit 'sticky' requiring minor adjustment. The barrel to frame fit is very tight and the checkering is still very crisp. Very nice little gun.
