Silver Mounted Georgian Pistol

Rifled in .50 caliber


This pistol 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. 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. Very nice well balanced pistol.

This gun is very typical of a gentleman's traveling pistol of the 1760-1780 period.
