We are offering for sale an antique Allen & Thurber Single Shot Percussion Boot Pistol with an 8” barrel. This pistol was produced in Worcester, Massachusetts in the1840’s and 50’s. It was meant to be carried in the boots of gold miners making it more accessible when they were bent over panning for gold. This pistol is apparently chambered in .40 caliber.

8” barrel is in good condition. There is small threade hole approximately ¾” down from the muzzle on the left side. Metal shows a nice patina. Missing trigger guard. Gun appears to function properly, although hammer does not fully hold back at times. Original wooden grips are beautiful.
