Cherry Stocked Percussion Pistol

in .45 caliber



This is a nice custom built pistol. The 10" long barrel is 13/16" across the flats and is .45 caliber. The barrel was made by Montana Barrel Company. It has a fast twist of about 1-22. The stock is a nice piece of cherry with German silver hardware. The lock is a CVA which has a strong mainspring. These locks are considered cheap but the percussion ones work very well and are an appropriate style for mid 19th century guns. The lock is blued and the barrel is a dark brown. This is a new pistol and has not been fired. Holds and points well. Should be a good shooter.
