John Gunderson Antique Militaria
M1813 US North percussion conversion Army pistol - $2250.00

Please click the image for a larger version
M1813 US North percussion conversion Army pistol. A scarce gun with only 1150 pieces delivered to the Army and Navy. Crude attempts are made to fake this model by cutting the stock on a common M1816 pistol, but these are obviously discerned by their .54 caliber bore. Marking "P" and "US" on barrel, only "S.N" are visible on the lock plate. Metal parts have a medium to dark patina overall with some light worn pitting on the lock. Stock shows evidence of having been lightly cleaned, has a small crack by the rear lock screw, and a hairline crack above the rear of the lock. Otherwise stock is sound with a medium-dark coloration. Mechanically good, sold as a collector item only, not warranted safe to shoot.
