This American stocked flintlock pistol has both American and European components. The two stage Spanish barrel is marked at the breech with a series of indistinct maker's marks. The flat lockplate is unmarked and has an unbridled pan. The brass furniture includes an "S"-shaped sideplate of probable American origin with some non-professional engraved decoration. The pommel cap has full stirrups and the triggerguard finial terminates in a stylized acorn. The ramrod ferrules are of sheet brass. The stock is American walnut and has early Georgian form. Complete with its original wooden ramrod with a flat iron cap. CONDITION: Very good, overall. Barrel retains a freckled light grey patina and shows some wear and darker areas. Lock functions well and is in its original flintlock configuration, grey freckled patina and one retaining screw is a replacement. The brass furniture retains a mellowing patina and and shows some wear. Ramrod ferrules have some minor losses. Stock shows some minor chipping around pommel cap and some shrinkage and scattered marks. This is a very nice and early American pistol.
