This is an American pistol in a style common from about 1780 to 1800. It is stocked in figured maple and has brass hardware. The handmade barrel is 9" long and is .56 caliber. The lock is a reworked small Siler. The rest is all handmade. It weighs 1 1/2 lbs.
Here is a second one I recently finished.
This one has a 9" barrel in .45 caliber with an L&R 'Bailes' lock.
This one has a really nice piece of curly maple wood. The barrel is 10"
octagon to round in .50 caliber. The lock is an L&R 'Bailes' lock.
