This pistol is stylized after the "holster" pistols that were made by American gunsmiths during the Revolutionary War. A blend of European and American styling, the American holsters pistols of the War for Independence would go on to influence the famous "Kentucky" pistols of the early 19th Century. Because of its 18th Century styling, this pistol would be appropriate for both Revolutionary War and War of 1812 reenacting.
This pistol is new and unfired. It features all American-made parts and was completely custom made. The lock is one of Jim Chamber's "Queen Anne" locks. Chambers locks are generally considered to be the gold standard among rifle builders as they are known for their reliability and astoundingly-fast lock time.
This gun was stocked up using a nice straight-grained piece of American Walnut The stock is in excellent condition with no cracks or chips and only a few minor handling marks.
The 9" tapered octagon is .58 caliber and was made by Colerain barrels, and features a great bore with no rust or pitting.
The brass furniture was all directly copied off of original examples and is nicely finished.
Included with this pistol is a custom fitted case complete with a wisk and pick, wooden cleaning rod, powder flask and powder funnel.
This handsome pistol would be a perfect choice for a reenactor, target shooter, or hunter. A truly custom gun for about the same price of an out-of-the-box Italian reproduction. Modern mass-produced flint pistols are all cookie-cutter copies of one another making this pistol a truly refreshing piece of craftsmanship for those looking for a sidearm.
