This is a great little gun! This is a great looking pistol from the early 1800's. This gun measures 6 inches in overall length with the barrel measuring 2-5/8ths of those inches. On the underside of the barrel, it has the English style proof markings. What makes this gun really stand out is the brass construction on the frame. It has a gorgeous deep mustard color to the brass. On the sides of the frame it has the ornate engraving. It also has the "S&J DAWES" maker mark on the left hand side. This is the marking of the Birmingham, England makers of Samuel & John Dawes. The make book states that they would have been in business from 1817 until 1822. It would have originally been made during those years as a flintlock and was later nicely converted to percussion. The gun is the version that has the trigger that drops down when you cock the hammer back. It still drops down as it should. The handle of the gun is constructed of a high quality single piece of wood. It has the hand carved anchor on the underside of the wood. This is a fine looking gun that is a couple of hundred years old.
