This is a beautiful and complete Civil War era gun with a beautiful grip! It is an original single shot pistol of the style that is known to collectors as the "Underhammer" pistol. They are designed with the hammer being located underneath the barrel. It protected the hammer well but made it hard to cock and also to keep the percussion cap in place when you readied the gun for firing. This one measures 7-3/4th inches in overall length with the barrel making up 3-7/8ths of those inches. It fires a bullet of about .28 caliber and is rifled. The barrel of the gun is part octagonal and part round. The round portion of the barrel has the blade style brass front sight intact. They have a rear sight at the very back of the top strap. The octagonal portion has the markings of "E.HUTCHINGS & CO/AGENTS.BALTO," "CAST-STEEL," and "PM/FC/1836,". These guns were made by the Sturbridge, Massachusetts from of the Gibbs Tiffany Company. They made one of the best of these underhammer pistols and this one is a beauty. It has the assembly number of "202" still clearly visible on the side of the barrel. The original 1-piece wooden handle is intact with a gorgeous look. The wood is a beautiful piece of walnut wood. The mechanics of the gun still cock back and release just as it should. This is a neat gun all the way around with a cool look.
