    Antique Trade pistol..Circa 1850's-1870's.
    .56 Caliber smoothbore...I have shot this pistol using :
    30 grains of 2F , a .15 patch and a .530 roundball with good results at 15-20 yards.

    Lock works are nice and crisp with a loud "Click" at half and full cock...springs , sear , tumbler etc... still have a long life ahead of them.
    Wood is sound with some older cracks with period repair...no new cracks / stable wood.
    Swivel ram rod...
    Lanyard ring appears to my eye to be a replacement...
    Unsure as to maker...looks English to me.
