1586. French Model 1837 Percussion Naval Pistol by Chatellerault

Click on images for enlarged versions.

.60 cal, 6 1/2" barrel with a bright excellent bore. The metal surfaces are an overall armory bright finish with scattered light plum oxidation staining but they are primarily smooth without pitting. The tang is model year-marked, with the maker marking on the back action lock. The brass hardware shows evidence of an older polishing and is starting to reacquire a goldenrod patina. The French walnut stock rates very good showing an older cleaning with the metal mostly proud. The left-side belt hook is intact, as is the lanyard loop and the lock is crisp and mechanically functional. This is a very attractive example overall. (38569-31) {ANTIQUE} [Calhoun LH Howard Collection] (500/700) SOLD FOR $546.25
