    Variant French M1822 Percussion Pistol With Minimal Markings. The .70 bore 7 3/4" barrel is octagonal for the first 1" then transitions to round. There is a half globe shaped mount at the muzzle on which is a small teat that serves as the front sight. The lock is marked but only "Mre Imp.ale" is visible. Essentially brass mounted with some small proof marks struck in the brass. The only exception to the brass is an iron strap that extends from the end of the barrel tang to the tang of the buttcap. retains the original iron ramrod. The lack of barrel markings seems to indicate they were never there in the first place, as compared to being lost as a result of cleaning. The gun is overall smooth and clean with excellent crisp lock mechanism.
