Item ID #1729

These are not seen very often. It is a converted S. North 1811 U.S. contract pistol. These were only made from 1811-1813 and saw use in the War of 1812. Caliber is .72. Action is very tight and it works perfectly. Markings on the lock are still complete and easy to see. The wood is in very good condition. I did not find any cracks. Barrel markings are correct. I could not remove the rod. It looks to be correct. Interesting pistol with a lot of history. It will make a nice addition to your collection.
