French M1822 Percussion Conversion Pistol
Converted from its original flintlock, with the lock plate markings largely ground away during the conversion process, however, it is possible to read the very faint markings of the Maubeuge Arsenal. Tapering round 8" barrel of .69 caliber with shallow rifling and octagonal breech stamped with numerous markings, including the date "1819", "Cdel 17.6A", and the serial number "358", which matches the number stamped on the left side of the walnut stock. Stock also features the faint stamp "ST ETIENNE". Brass fittings with numerous inspection stamps, including fore end cap, trigger guard, side plate, and butt cap with steel lanyard ring. Steel parts generally smooth; the stock with wear and light handling marks. Overall length 14". These French M1822 percussion pistols were widely used throughout Europe and also imported for use during the American Civil War.
