200 Year Old Early 1800s Antique FLINTLOCK .60 Caliber “MANSTOPPER” Pistol
Likely made in the United States
Here we present an antique Flintlock Pistol, made circa the early19th Century likely in the United States. This large bored pistol would have been intended for use as either a self-defense firearm or possibly carried into battle. It is a fairly large sized flintlock, being able to fit into a large pocket or more likely in a belt or holster. Its barrel is 7-3/8 inches in length. This pistol has a .60 caliber bore and would have been most at home tucked into a gentleman’s belt when not punching large holes.
This also would have been the type of pistol an officer would have purchased on his own to bring to battle in case he was to come into contact with the enemy. Rifle and pistol manufacture throughout the 19th Century was rapidly changing over from thousands of craftsmen all over the United States and on the Frontier making and selling their wares, to the large factories with standardized assembly lines and modern manufacturing techniques. Many makers’ names of these rifles and pistols have been lost over time. This pistol is one such example.
The overall condition is good. Strong action. The bore is in good shape for its age. The stock/grip are well used but remain solid throughout. It appears a few attempts at a refinish have been made in the past.
