    A great day at the local gun show where I purchased this
    British sea service flintlock pistol. The arthritic engraving
    on the plate and cock have me a bit worried, but there
    are plenty of markings on it which make it look to be
    a good, authentic piece - or at least I hope so.

    Sorry for the rather crummy pics.........

    That's a beauty Steve!
    "Please", Thank You" and proper manners appreciated

    I would be a wee bit nervous about the appearance of the steel bolts head slots looking abit too untouched over the last 2 centuries. I hope I'm wrong,as it's tough to do a good looking over when not in hand, but an early 19th century or turn of the century replica of a Tower pistol? But...if it isn't...it's in amazingly fine condition and an Excellent find! Not many marks at all in that soft brass butt cap!

    In the links above there are quite a few which resemble mine
    very closely, and I am not sure about these either. The gun
    was rather expensive, but not as high priced as the ones
    in the linked examples.........


    I also found this link to another forum. The guys there are
    poo-poo-ing the posted example:
