English F/L Cannon Barrel Pistol- Hold

” W. Archer ” 


This is a very nice example of W. Archer’s extra fine engraving style . The screw off barrel is 5 1/2″ and of .48 cal.  The grip is bulbous and fits the hand nicely.  Both sides have had hair line cracks repaired and are solid .The action is good on both half and full cock. These early screw barrels had a big advantage over the muzzle loading counter parts as they were much faster to load and fire.  Sold
