Click on images for enlarged versions.

.41 cal, 2'' barrel with a lightly oxidized bore. The barrel is a fading original plum brown with toning to pewter along its top flat but with strong trace remnants of the lightning bolt bronzing. It features a dovetailed German silver scant blade front sight with dual inlaid silver bands at the patent breech which is maker marked and sunburst P proofed. There is very light engraving on the tang and the bolster, as well as on the pewter-tone lockplate and hammer. The cap splash plate, triggerguard bow, pineapple front extension, wedge escutcheons and flourish style sideplate are lightly engraved German silver, the shield-shaped monogram plate atop the wrist shows only light borderline engraving and the teardrop inlay at the butt shows an iron hinged nipple or percussion cap recess; there is an unadorned triangle plate at the nosecap. The walnut stock rates very good showing perhaps an old very light cleaning and a bit of added finish, but the checkering remains strong, showing only very light wear. The gun seems to function well mechanically and is a fine example with a 5'' overall length. (38751-15) {ANTIQUE} (2000/4000) Sold For 1955.00
