Silver Mounted Georgian Pistol

Rifled in .50 caliber


This pistol was just finished up as a display piece. It is stocked in American walnut and has sterling silver mounts. The sideplate is copied from one that was in brass and dug up at the Geddy Foundry in Colonial Williamsburg. Click here for information on the Foundry and it's history. The barrel is a custom oct-round 9" long with a cannon muzzle turning. It is in .50 caliber and rifled. The lock is a Chamber's small Queen Anne style. The ramrod has a horn tip. The gun is new and has not been fired. Very nice well balanced pistol. This gun is very typical of a gentleman's traveling pistol of the 1760-1780 period. The pictures will tell you more.
