    Kind of looks like a Belgium pinfire pistol. But what do I know? Not much really.

    I agree. From the photo it looks like a Belgian pinfire.
    Any markings on the top of the barrel???

    It looks like a Lefaucheaux with the broomhandle grip and that rounded spur at the top of the grip!...
    It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

    Hi,
    i have researched and found that the 1854 Lefaucheaux military issue pistol was part of the 11,833 purchased and issued to the Union army.
