Click on an image to enlarge
This is one wonderful looking piece of history! This one started out life as a model 1819 military flintlock pistol made by the firm of Simeon, North of Middleton, Connecticut. On the lockplate you can still see the production location and the North maker mark and the Union eagle. It also has the production date of 1822 stamped behind the hammer. When the flintlock system became outdated it was converted to the percussion style. This was done by removing the flintlock pan and adding the drum style nipple bolster as you can see in the picture. They also replaced the lockplate hammer to complete the conversion. All of the metal parts have a used but not abused surface with a wonderful color attic tone. The breech of the barrel still has the original Government inspector proof marks still visible. It still has the original ramrod and swivel present on the underside of the barrel. The stock has an ancient look to the walnut with a nice tone. on the flat of the stock that is opposite of the lockplate it has the remnants of the "LS" inspector's cartouche where the gun was approved for military use. These are the initials of Luther Sage who approved the gun for the U.S. Ordnance Department. The action still catches on one of the original two positions. This is a wonderful gun that is 200 years old and has a lot of character.
