Original British Percussion Converted Flintlock Overcoat Pistol Signed "Bury" with Proof Marked Barrel - Circa 1810
Original Item: Only One Available. Dating to about 1810, this is a very nice plain iron mounted pistol with a 6 1/2" barrel, measuring 11" in overall length. Originally made in flintlock, it was later converted to percussion, most likely during the Early Victorian era. The attachment points for the frizzen and spring can still be seen on the lock plate, with the holes now plugged.
The lock is faintly inlaid in gold with what looks to be Bury, and there is also some other gold inlay up above by where the pan used to be. Unfortunately we have not been able to find any information regarding this maker. There is also a partial proof mark on the barrel, which looks to be a mis-struck CROWN / GP "Gunmakers" proof from the London Proof house.
Overall the pistol is in very nice sound condition, with a lovely worn patina. The metalwork has a lovely gray color, and the stock has a lovely color and grain patterns. The pistol functions correctly, with the lock holding at half cock and firing only at full.
A very nice percussion converted pistol, ready to research and display!
