.54 Cal, 8 1/2" barrel with an oxidized bore. The metal surfaces are an overall dull gray patina with some light pitting on rear of barrel and upper tang, scattered oxidation staining and some scattered dings. The brass parts are turning a dull yellow patina with scattered oxidation staining and some light dings. The walnut stock rates about very good overall with an added varnish finish, two faint cartouches on the left side, what appears to be the letters "XD" carved into the left side, a 2" crack underneath lockplate, a few scattered smaller cracks, scattered dings, scratches, abrasions and handling marks. The markings on the lockplate and barrel appear faint, the ramrod is loose but the hammer appears to function well. An about very good example of these U.S. martial pistols.
