    Likely an Early Restocking of a Pre-1750 British Flintlock Pistol. This gun appears to be an early restocking of a pre 1750 era flintlock pistol using early British parts. 12 1/4" octagon to sixteenths to round iron .60 caliber smoothbore barrel. The gun is 19" overall, and all iron mounted. Original flintlock configuration with four proof marks at the rear on the upper left flat of the barrel. There is a nicely engraved round faced banana shaped lock with the appropriate original hammer, along with a serpentine side plate, a decorative wrist escutcheon, stepped butt cap with side straps, iron trigger guard and two ribbed ramrod pipes. The iron surfaces show honest wear with scattered light pitting, however, the engraving on the lock plate is much sharper than that which remains on the top flat of the barrel. There are other variations in wear, along with the less than expected wear to the near perfect wood, which does display a nice patina, that imply that the gun is a restock. A very attractive gun.

    The pre and post sales experience was wonderful and flawless. Heritage has the best in-house operation I have ever seen and their people are not only professional but fun to work with, especially Steve C.

    As for Heritage's online system… Yes the interface is more complex than what we are used to with SAN but what is behind that interface is amazing for sellers and buyers alike. It is real time and for a real serious auction buyer there is nothing better in the auction industry, bar none.
