Here is a great looking little gun that must have packed a punch. This pistol measures 7-3/4th inches in overall size with the barrel making up 3-1/2 of those inches. The barrel is a long but fired a bullet of about .43 caliber which was quite a load. The frame of the gun has the maker's marking engraved as well as smaller additional floral and geometric patterns. It has the desirable maker's mark of the famous Richards Company of London that is faintly visible. They were one of the premiere maker's of weapons during the 1800's. The mechanics of the gun still work well on all positions. It is in the original flintlock configuration as it was when it was new. On the underside behind the triggerguard one of the more modern owners added their social number. Some of the earlier collectors were known to do this. It is priced accordingly. The original one-piece dark wood grip is intact on the handle of the gun. The wood of the handle still retains the original silver inlay which gives it a gorgeous look. Judging by the construction of this gun it would date from about 1800 to 1830. This is a nice solid gun all the way around with the desirable Richards mark.
