Two-stage rifled steel cannon barrel, with British view and proof marks, as well as "RW" for maker Richard Wilson. Lock, in original flint configuration, also marked "WILSON." American-made sheet brass buttcap inscribed "FK" and simple triggerguard. Heavy American-made rounded iron trigger. Figured maple full-length stock, carved with relief scrolls around barrel tang, clearly the work of Frederick Sell. Relief panels around lock and lock retaining screws; replaced wooden ramrod. CONDITION: Excellent, barrel retains a dark grey patina. Lock very good, in original flint, matching dark grey patina. Brass is unpolished, stock excellent with a few light marks from use, carving is crisp. A very nice Frederick Sell-made pistol using the lock and barrel from an early English Wilson pistol.
