Georgian Flintlock Pistol by Griffin (AH6334)
.65 caliber flintlock. Barrel is 8" and overall length is 14". Lock is marked "Griffin" and barrel is marked "London". The brass parts are very good with a fine patina. Pistol has a long tang butt cap. The brass shield with flourishes bears a royal cypher of a crown over the letter "R" and No. 1; indicating one to assume there would be others. (Possible guard use.) This is a well cared for pistol with sharp markings. This is a fine example of a Georgian pistol made during the period of King George III.
