This is an original single shot pistol made by the famous firm of Allen & Thurber of Worcester, Massachusetts. It has a small portion the stamped maker mark still visible on the flat top of the part round, part octagonal barrel. The barrel is the very long pattern with the 8 inch length. This is more than double the length of the standard Allen style pistol barrel. I guess if you couldn’t shoot the enemy you could poke his eye out with this huge barrel. The action work well in both positions. It has the assembly number of "D2” on the underside of the barrel just in front of where the triggerguard would have been at one time. The original wooden grips are present on the handle and they have a nice well worn look. This is a great looking and also interesting pistol for your collection.
