EUROPEAN Style Antique BOXLOCK British FLINTLOCK .48 Caliber POCKET Pistol
SMALL Early 1800s Self Defense Pistol
Here we present an antique European Boxlock Flintlock Self Defense Pistol, made circa the early 1800s. This little self-defense pistol would have been most at home in the pocket of anyone in the busy cities of London, Paris and Liege during the very early 1800s. This pistol is small, light and simple. The “Pocket Pistol” name says it all. They were the “Saturday Night Specials” of the 18th-19th century. Before the Deringer, they were “Gentleman’s” or “Muff Pistols”, typically, a smaller pistol that was easily concealed. They were favored among the gentry and women because of these traits. Men would carry them concealed in a waistcoat pocket and women would hide them in a hand muff.
The overall condition is good. Strong action. This example is missing the safety latch. The bore is in good shape for its age. Solid grip with average handling.
