Original U.S. 19th Century E. Allen-Style Single Shot Percussion Pocket Pistol

Item Description

Original Item: Only One Available. This is a lovely early percussion pocket pistol, made in the 1830's for the U.S. Market. It is made very much in the Ethan Allen style of Pocket Pistol. With a 3" barrel, half round, half octagonal , with a plain steel frame and wood bag style grip this is exactly what Gamblers etc. carried for personal protection.

Just 6 1/2" overall, this pistol was easy to conceal, and provided just a little bit of assurance to any traveler. Serial numbered, which is unusual, with No.165. Condition of the pistol is good, though it has the expected wear and patina for being over 150 years old. The original fit and finish also was not quite up to the level of an E. Allen, with the grips overlapping the frame a bit.

Fully cleaned, a cute little pocket Pistol, ready for display.
