Authentic Civil War Period Double Barrel “Hand-Cannon” Antique Pistol. A real statment Piece! Ex-museum collection with old museum number tag.
Double barrel Civil War period boot pistol This was most likely imported for the U.S. market during the Civil War. There is no date or numbers so it is impossible to accurately date this one. Most likely late 1850’s to Early Civil War. It is a standard non-engraved version with plain wood grips. One trigger works and cocks. The spring is broken on theother trigger and it does not cock. A simple repair to the spring will most likely fix it. The gun is about a .40 caliber. A choice beautiful display pistol. A favorite of both Confederate and Union soldiers during the Civil War. Many Civil War soldiers carried private purchase “back up” weapons as illustrated in the photo above. This gun is 100% guaranteed to be authentic, and unaltered. A fantastic non-functioning display piece. Complete museum documentation (COA) provided. This is a pre-1898 antique gun so no federal registration is required.
