Antique DOUBLE BARREL Over/Under PERCUSSION Pistol
Nicely ENGRAVED Mid-19th Century Self-Defense Pistol
Here we present an antique Double Barrel, Over-Under Percussion Belt Pistol, made circa the 1850s in Europe. This would have likely been intended as a self-defense gun. The engravings on the frame of this pistol, along with the engraved brass, show that it was marketed to someone who wanted more than just a tool. The over/under configuration is highlighted by two separate percussion chambers, one for each barrel, as compared to a rotating barrel. The integrated ramrod fits neatly between the two barrels, also highly adorned with brass. The figured, carved walnut stock is also very nice.. In its day, this little two shot over/under percussion pistol would have been a very handy self-defense weapon to have around, having two shots to fire off instead of one! This pistol was likely worn on one’s belt or carried in a coat pocket!
The overall condition is good. The iron surfaces retain some of the twist pattern on the barrels. The walnut stock is attractive and has very nice grain. There are repairs around the top of the locks. The bores are smooth and in good shape. The action is excellent.
