Click on an image to enlarge
This is a cool gun with a very pleasing look. It is a nice original Model 1836 single shot military pistol. The gun was manufactured by Asa Waters Company. On the lockplate is the original production date of 1842 as well as the Milbury, Massachusetts production location. This pattern of gun has a special place in American firearms history. It is the US model 1836 single shot flintlock pistol. These guns have the distinction of being the last handgun the US government purchased that was in the flintlock configuration. Starting with the next model, model 1842, the handguns were percussion. The lock plate has been reconverted from percussion back to the original flintlock configuration. It was very well done and is priced as a reconversion. The mechanics of the lock work fluidly on both of the positions. It has a replacement brass screw in the lockplate. The barrel is full-length and has the "JA" inspector initials clearly stamped at the breech of the barrel. These are the initials of the Government inspector John Avis. It also has part of the small "US" letters still visible. Underneath the barrel it has the original ramrod and ramrod swivel. It has a nice medium tone to the wood with a nice well worn look to the piece of walnut. This one is a very cool looking weapon for your collection.
