Description

    Really Excellent US M1842 Percussion Single Shot Pistol - Aston / 1852. Barrel bright and clean with no rust or pitting. Lock smooth and light gray with traces of colors. Mechanically tight and crisp. Brass furniture perfect, generally bright and clean. Wood really exceptional, overall near mint with sharp edges, deep crisp inspectors' cartouches and nice mellow patina. Original ramrod and swivel with just one small nick in the swivel on the obverse side else perfect. Very good bore, excellent barrel proofs. A really exceptional M1842 and certainly one of the nicest we've ever cataloged.
