Please click the image for a larger version
C1750 Continental horse pistol. 11-1/4" barrel, about 18-1/2" overall, about .75 caliber. Unmarked except for unknown touch mark on side plate. Metal parts have an attractive medium to dark patina overall with some minimal pitting from use in the barrel breech area. Stock is good, carved around the borders, showing scattered powder post beetle holes, may have once had a cap on the forearm tip, exhibits some slivering in the forearm edges, a couple minor cracks in the lock mortise, and some minor worn chips around the buttcap. Action operates, but not with confidence. Sold as a collector item only, not warranted safe to shoot.
