    This old beast belongs to my father. I thought it was awesome and I decided I would share it with you guys here.

    Occassionally the old man will stick it in his pants, walk around and tell everyone its his pirate gun.

    A little history . . . Its an old percussion pistol from the 1800s. I believe It was a prototype from a company marketing to the military at the time. Not a whole ton is known about it.

    Careful. The Brady bunch will want to ban that gun because it looks to scary.

    The butt looks like it would be a great club, too.

    Galant, thanks for sharing!

    The front barrel band for the octagonal barrel, is indicative of military; probably 1840-1850; may even be an early flintlock conversion. No ramrod?
    Better pics of the top, sides would might help identification ...

    Nonetheless a fun fine pirrrrrate gun ... Seahawk pirates would love it in a belt ...
