For another example of this model see number 114 on page 240 of "Historic Pistols" by Samuel E. Smith and Edwin W. Bitter. This model was made between 1805 and 1811. The pistol has a round smoothbore barrel marked at the breech with a partially visible "P". The flat lockplate has beveled edges and is marked "VIRGINIA / Manufactory" in the center and "RICHMOND / 180-(9?)" at the tail. Standard First Model iron mounts and backstrap. Full length plain walnut stock with modern replaced iron ramrod. CONDITION: Barrel and all iron components have been heavily cleaned and show pitting throughout. Lock is in its original flintlock configuration, markings show some wear and cock is a modern replacement. Stock shows scattered areas of chipping around lock and a small crack at the tail. An honest example of a rare and early Virginia Manufactory pistol. DMG
