Product Information

This is a boxlock flintlock pistol, circa late 1700s. This example features a folding trigger that is activated when the hammer is cocked. The London makers name is just visible, possible Maynard Gordon? and it has London proof stamps. The calibre measures around .40 of an inch, around 10mm. This type of pistol was carried by British Gentry as their personnel firearm and could be easily concealed in their waistcoat or pockets.

This historic flintlock is chambered in an antique obsolete calibre and can therefore be owned live without any form of license. The bore is in very good order. It can be cocked, stripped and dry fired. The action is still tight and crisp and locks back on half and full cock. The Frizzen spring has lost a little of ts tension but this doesn't affect the workings.

It is not deactivated in any way and is being sold as a collectors piece only.
