Original French 1840 Percussion Pocket Pistol by Leclerc of Paris
Original Item. Only One Available. This is a small single shot percussion pistol with screw off octagonal 2.25 barrel, the entire overall length being just 6.5. The hidden trigger flips out when the gun is cocked as the intent was that this was a hidden weapon only to be used if accosted whilst out and about. Minimal engraving, just a solid little gun for both a gentleman or even a lady. Nicely marked Leclerc - Paris on the barrel, features a fold flat trigger and functions perfectly.
Manufactured about 1840 and therefore legally considered an antique not requiring a federal license to own.

This law exempts antique firearms from any form of gun control or special engineering because they are not legally considered firearms. No FFL, C&R or any license is required to posses, transport, sell or trade Antique guns. All rifles and muskets sold by IMA that were manufactured prior to 1899 are considered Antiques by the US BATF (United States Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco & Firearms). Therefore, all of IMA's Antique guns may be shipped to all US States and most nations around the world.
