Original and Extremely Rare English Double-Barrel Percussion Pistol, .40cal

This is truly a one-of-a-kind percussion pistol, made for a very specific customer. Unlike most double barrel pistols, which have a trigger for each barrel, this one has off-set hammers and a single split mainspring with one trigger pull expelling both barrels. The ramrod is also set on a swivel, allowing it to be used for each barrel without detaching from the pistol. Although it has a wonderful aged patina, the frame and barrel is made from brass. Bottom of the barrel is stamped with the English crossed halberds. Beautiful birdhead grips are intact and without cracks or dings. Truly a must have for any gun collector!

Here is an original, 1864-dated M1861 .58 caliber “Trenton Contract” percussion rifle-musket in very good condition overall. The rifled musket was a product of the Trenton Locomotive and Machine Company of Trenton, New Jersey, circa 1863-64 and was sold to the State of New Jersey under contract. The firm also had contracts with the U.S. government as well and produced some 11,500 weapons for the army.

Musket retains its original stock, original iron nipple and bolster screw, swell-shaped ramrod, barrel bands, and swivel sling hooks. The 40” long barrel has a browned surface and exhibits moderate pitting at the breech. Barrel, lockplate, butt plate, bands, retaining springs, trigger guard, rear sight, and ramrod all wear a pleasing, smooth plum brown color. Lock plate is stamped “U. S. / TRENTON” in front of the hammer and “1864” stamped behind hammer. A spreadwinged eagle motif is stamped on plate between hammer and bolster. Lockplate patina matches the gun; has nice stampings, with light peppering. Steel butt plate strongly stamped with “U S.” Musket also exhibits sub-inspector marks on some components.

Barrel has the original two-leaf rear sight and small blade front sight. All barrel bands present. Middle band secures one sling swivel while the triggerguard has the 2nd swivel. Bore has no rifling with areas of light pitting overall. Barrel date stamp on the top flat is pitted away. All screws are good condition with light buggering. Government proof marks “V / P / eaglehead” on left facet of the breech are clear and visible. Mechanics are crisp. Black walnut stock is in very good untouched condition. Stock shows slightly rounded edge contours and has two government cartouches above the triggerguard. A partial identification is stamped into the left flat and reads “A. M. BURT.” No information or research done on Burt as yet. No cracks or breaks in the wood save dings and dents from use and storage. Retains its swelled shank steel ramrod with its tulip-head and threaded tip in very good condition.
