    Hi Guys, not something I know anything about, but I thought that you would like to see them. In the collection of the British Army. Not the best of pics, as they were in a case, inside another case.

    Cheers, Ade.

    I could still be persuaded to accept them, if they need the room in the museum....

    Very Nice ! These were likely used for target practice,
    although as a pair, they are commonly referred to
    as 'Dueling Pistols'.........

    Hi Ade,
    Not hi-jacking your post just adding to it. My picture is no better than yours but I also got one of the brass plate that was associated with the guns.
