This is a very cool looking old military pistol. This is the U.S. model 1816 flintlock pistol. It was made by the firm of Simeon, North of Middletown, Connecticut. You can still see a good bit of the maker’s mark on the lockplate along with the eagle and "US” mark. The barrel is .54 in caliber size and is full-length at 9-1/4th inches. According to Flayderman's guide, they only made these for three years from 1817 until 1820. During that time, they only made 19,374 of them. This one has a great polished bright tone all over. The first thing that makes this one special is that it is in the original flintlock. Most of the time, these were converted to percussion for use during later conflicts. The mechanics still catch on both of the positions but the mainspring is missing in action and it is priced accordingly. At the breech of the barrel it has the "US" stamping to go along with the "P" marking showing that it was approved for military use. The stock of the gun has a very attractive look to the American walnut. On the flat of the stock opposite of the lockplate it has the very faint remnants of the oval "OA" lettering that stands for the Government inspector, Oliver Allen. It has areplacement style wooden ramrod in the channel underneath the barrel. This is a nice original model 1816 United States Military flintlock pistol by Simeon North.
