Civil War Period Horse Pistol Massive .68 Caliber Amazing Historical artifact. A very large working horse pistol circa 1840’s-50’s. This is one of the larger caliber Civil War period pistol we ever had and is defiantly a “Hand Cannon”. We placed a Civil War .69 caliber musket ball in the barrel and it was just a bit big so we estimate this pistol to be about .67- .68 caliber. It is heavy and massive! There is a maker mark stamps. It has a working cap and ball system with need for a spring adjustment. full cock works well. Must push the hammer when firing .67-68 caliber smooth bore barrel. Original metal ramrod is included. Both Confederate and Union soldiers during the Civil War used horse pistols. Many Civil War soldiers carried private purchase “back up” weapons as illustrated in the photo above. This gun is 100% guaranteed to be authentic, as found. Complete museum documentation (COA) provided. This is a pre-1898 antique gun so no federal registration is required.
