Description: Lot of three 1840''s pocket percussion pistols - all .4-.5 cal..

1. c.1840 Belgian brass cannon-barrel pocket percussion pistol. It has the Liege proof, and an 'o' stamp on bbl. The grip is a decent replacement, but the hammer does not pull back completely. The mainspring is there and I'm not sure what's blocking it, but there's a fiddly nail to punch out, and, for the price, I'm not interested in doing it!

2. A very interesting pistol. Purchased in Paris in the late 1940's by the father of the guy I got it from, it looks like an 1840's French pocket percussion pistol. BUT it has never been screwed for a percussion nipple. It simply has a small hole drilled through to the breech. It is all clearly old/original, barrel has square makers mark. I believe it is a tubelock, but have never been able to find another example. May be worth something? Stock/action both very good.

3. A French pocket percussion pistol. Crisp action and retains much of its' original case-hardening. Trigger guard has makers initials AV GS. Per Jarlier, almost certainly (A) Vitry & (G) Simon, gunmakers in Paris 1843-1851. Unfortunately someone has used the left grip to hammer a nail in(?), so a few dings on the grip (right grip OK). Minor sanding/filling/staining would make this invisible.

Please ask me for more photos.of all, or any, of these.
