Click an Image to Enlarge It
c. 1790-1810, Pair of French Revolution to Napoleonic War Use Officer's Checkered Grip Pistols with Wooden Case, Extremely Fine.

This nice Pair of French Revolution to Napoleonic War Officer's Pistols have heavy 7" steel, .69 caliber swamped micro-rifled octagon barrels. Each Pistol measures: 13.25" overall. Unmarked locks with high quality roller frizzens. All steel furniture. Original steel ram rods. Both stocks have fine micro-checkered grips that are solid and have light scratches and dings from years of handling. One Pistol’s stock exhibits old period repairs which include 2 sections of replacement wood on the right side, just forward of the lock mortise. Both Pistols are in their original Flintlock configuration and are in good mechanical working order. Housed in a quality period box with inset flush-mounted carrying handles on both sides of the box, and decorative brass inlaid in the lid. It is our opinion that these Pistols are not original to the box yet are a wonderful marriage and they display together well. This box measures: 17.75" x 10.5" x 3.25" with blue velvet lining (most likely restored interior). Key to the front lock is lacking. Accessories Include: a brass 3-way powder flask, bullet mold, tow, patches, lead balls, extra flints, turn screw, powder measure, extra flints, and wads. Overall, wonderful in eye appeal for display. (2 guns)
