Don't know if anyone else has seen this.......
Woops. That's not the one I wanted. Try this one....
I picked one of those up about ‘85, replaced the frizzen spring and it shot pretty good. Paid $35 for it, just gave it to my nephew.
I think if the guy who was trying to sell it was on this forum he would know that the pistol could be worth far more than the cheap price that was mentioned.
If the lock and barrel were in good condition and sound, that pistol could make a pretty good flintlock pistol for doing some shooting.
Without taking it apart and examining the lock and barrel figuring out if it was worth some money or it was just a piece of junk would be needed but with the prices being asked for flintlock pistols today it might be worth several hundred dollars.
That's a lot better than the jerks on Porn Stars would give him.
Hi Tenngun. I seem to recall getting the same gun from Dixie back in the mid-1960's for full retail of about $35.00. Had the extra work offered by them done of hardening the frizzen and reducing the frizzen spring thickness for an extra $6.50. LOL As many would I.D. the flint pistol being one of the Japanese replics so popular in the 60's/70's. They must have sold hundreds of these as they are always for sale on Ebay or Gunbroker. LOL
How would anyone see stamped markings and not have serious doubts?
