Description
Authentic Belgian/London circa 1850's to 1870's Cap & Ball 58 caliber Pistol

$375

14.5" overall length

8.5" barrel

An original flintlock pistol that has been converted to cap and ball percussion. The hammer is not original to the piece. The barrel with engraved brass hardware is in very good condition.

The hammer will not stay cocked.

Barrel is marked LONDON with English proofs including the Crown GR, Crown with crossed swords (Black Powder Proof Mark), and LEG in an oval (Belgium mark).

During this time period, it was normal for the barrels to be cast in Belgium and sent to England to be completed in construction. This would account for the pistols Belgian markings as well as the English Proof markings.

As this is a relic, anyone can purchase this firearm. No firearms license is needed.
