Project Description

!!!!!SOLD!!!!!  This is a rare, much smaller version of the antique box lock, drop trigger, screw off barrel percussion muff pistol.  1 5/8″ long overall with a 3/4″ round tapered brass barrel with turned grooves of about .064 caliber.  The frame and grip are much smaller than normal, about 3/4 of the size of those usually seen.  The frame is steel, and is very nicely engraved.  The one piece grip is engraved gold.  The mechanism works perfectly, the trigger dropping into place as the hammer is cocked.  The frame shows considerable rust pitting.  The grip is excellent.  There is a hole in the upper tang where there once was a hanging ring.  It is possible that the barrel is not original but a later replacement.  These extra small size miniature boxlock pistols are very rare, & this is only the second one I have ever been able to offer for sale.  Stock # TDM-05.  !!!!!SOLD!!!!!
