Flintlock Pistol

This type of Flintlock Pistol was used during the War of 1812. The pistol is 6 3/4 inches from the stock to the end of the barrel. The barrel itself is metal and is 2 3/4 inch long with a 1/2 inch diameter. The pistol has a wooden handle, trigger and cock section. The trigger remains hidden until the cock section is pulled back. The walnut handle has a star design incised on both sides. A metal plate on the barrel reads: "London", and on the opposite side: "I & W Richards". Also, a crown with a V below it, is the London proof mark. Another crown with a GP below it, is the Gunmaker's proof of 1702.
