SHIP'S CAPTAIN .60 CAL. 18TH CENT. FLINTLOCK PISTOL  Guns > Pistols > Muzzleloading Pre-1899 Pistols (flint)
Description: Gun works good on half cock, and full cock. The hammer is a re-enforced cock like English pistols of the era, but the gun appears to be more of a Dutch export.The barrel is about 9" long and the muzzle is very thin from being fired many times. Overall length is about 16" and comes with a tapered hardwood ram-rod. I haven't seen any barrel proofs or lock markings; so this was made for export from Europe.Mellow brass furniture, and long langet butt-cap of the 18th century. Evidence that the flat brass side plate had a belt hook, as there is one extra hole for that purpose. The barrel retaining pins are not separate, but on a long rod as seen on the right side of the gun, a good idea as when the stock pins were removed for gun cleaning they could easily be dropped in a rolling ship and not easily found! Nose wood may have been re-attached pot possibly an added piece as they were prone to break off when the stock pin was removed and re-assembled many times . An intriguing , and interesting flint lock pistol. Check my inventory of rare grips, unusual gun parts, barrels and holsters. Shipping may be higher than stated as shippers raise their prices twice year without notice! When buying a gun always have it examined by a competent gunsmith before shooting. To buy a gun from me you must get a direct email for me, with details, and shipping cost. We don’t have a web site .I prefer money orders or a check. Item ships when funds come in. If you can only pay with a card let me know. I’m sorry I don’t list my phone number, did that for 30 days, never again.. I can’t talk on the phone all day…who will ship the guns? I’m just one person, and it’s very busy here! I do a brisk volume! I hope you like my wide selection of unusual guns, knives and gun parts. Shipping price determined by zip code. I try to keep the prices affordable, which means I make less money than most dealers. You won’t get altitude sickness with my prices! I consistently have the best selection of older guns If you attempt to buy, you must still contact us for details . A phone call won’t always secure a sale! Sometimes a local person can stop buy and purchase before the gun is removed. Not home many times. I can get six buys in an hour for the same gun this happens when guns are sold very reasonable! Best to send another email . Sometimes not home to get calls. Some guns are required shipment to a gun dealer near you for a transfer to you when it arrives. With the widest selection of older guns at great prices, We don’t have a store, and sell on the internet only. Thank You.
