Original U.S. 19th Century E. Allen-Style Rifled Single Shot Percussion Pistol circa 1840

Regular price $495.00

Item Description

Original item: Only One Available. Straight out of the Attic from over 100 years storage included in I.M.A.'s latest bulk acquisition, this is offered almost just as we received it. It was only given a quick wipe down for photography. The pistol is 9 1/2" in overall length and needing a good cleaning, with some possible restoration. It is missing its small all steel ramrod, front ramrod pipe, as well as the rear sight top.

This is a Classic style of the Ethan Allen design of the period. Six sided rifling in the 6" barrel which is round at the front but changes to octagonal for the rear 2 1/2". Wood bag type grip with steel frame and percussion side hammer. There is a serial number V22 marked under the grip, as well as on the trigger. There is also a marking that looks like 41 on the left side of the barrel.

In full working order and will improve dramatically with a good cleaning, or ready to display as found.
