US M1842 percussion pistol manufactured Johnson with 8 - 1/2" round barrel with no rear sight and brass blade front. Barrel is marked "US / JH / P" on left side and is dated 1847 near breech. Lock is dated 1855. Captured ramrod with walnut stock and brass mountings. CONDITION: Excellent, as cleaned with light freckling throughout. Lock appears to be a replacement, possibly done during the period. "C" marking near bolster in lock mortise.

Would make an excellent example in a type collection of US martial pistols. TON
