This is a great looking gun for the money! It is an original model 1822 French pattern military pistol. They have always been one of my favorite designs of pistol because of the brass used on the grip cap, triggerguard and barrel band. This one is complete and has a wonderful tone to the brass pieces. The barrel is full-length with the correct French proof marks on the sides of the barrel. The front side of the barrel has the 1854 production date still clearly visible. The tang has the model 1822 mark still clearly visible. It originally would have been made as a flintlock in 1822 and was converted later on so they could still use it but in the percussion state as we see it today. The action of the gun works superbly on all positions. The lockplate has the very faint traces of the maker’s mark of the Mutzig Arsenal mark. The 1-piece stock of the gun has a very pleasing look and on the flat opposite of the lockplate you can see the traces of the mark where it was in the French arsenal at one time. The original ramrod is present underneath the barrel and it has the lanyard ring present on the end of the grip. This is a great looking fully functional French style military pistol from the Civil War era.
