    Default Fake 'Pepperbox' Pistol.........! ?

    Hi All. Saw this in the Classifieds and thought to open a discussion
    on it. The seller 'Mohammed' says he found it under a building.

    There was an almost identical pistol on not long ago that was
    deemed a fake - For one, the British Army never made
    or issued pistols of this type.........

    Hi Steve,

    It's a 'Khyber Pass' fake, made from old bits of scrap, there's thousands out there.

    Regards, Ned.

    Edit. Note how the hammer cannot possibly strike the percussion cap when it is seated on the chamber nipple, it's too short, plus crap engraving, crudely carved maker mark which appears to want to be 'Enfield', but is spelt here 'Enl.....'

    Looks like a kid with a lazy hand and Dremel was let loose on it. LOL.

    As Ned said, straight fake there is no way that the percussion cap can be touched by the hammer

    Lol - the guy is asking $300,000.00 for it with $1,800 postage, so I guess
    I shouldn't be too quick getting my wallet out !

    He has already been told that this pistol is a dud in a previous thread
    but has continued on to the Classifieds with it.........!
    Regards,


    Steve.

    big ned lays it all out, but i don't see why i can't jump all over it too.

    i lived in the middle east for years. and for anyone who has, this type of "workmanship" and materials should be very familiar.

    you can recognize this stuff from across a dimly lit room.

    if that thing ever makes it to England, that'll be its first time.

    I think Moohamad is trying to jerk the lowly infidels around.

    Dammit, I was just going to sell the house too. Oh well, I guess it wasn't meant to be.
