    Description

    LARGE BORE PERCUSSION PISTOL OF BELGIAN MANUFACTURE, circa 1850s. No visible maker markings evident. 6½" barrel in. .68 caliber with microgroove rifling, functioning lock mechanism. Modestly engraved breech, lock, hammer, trigger guard and butt cap. Wood stock is checkered at grip and original iron ramrod is intact. Someone, in an unconvincing manner, has, using individual die stamps, marked a piece of silver "DR. SAML WOODHOUSE" and affixed it to the wood at the base of the wood butt.

    Condition: Very nice example of a large bore single shot pistol. Uniform patina on metal with no pitting. Considerable amount of varnish.
