American underhammer pistol

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

under-hammer pistol, cal. .50 percussion smoothbore; the grooves are for a device to screw in or out the barrels for loading. Over and under / superposed pair of round 3" barrels,  fine American style engraved receiver, barrels of brownish color, plain wooden grip. Two pistons, one for each barrel, both barrels fire at the same time. The screw behind the trigger is an uncommon safety. There are no markings, numbers or proof stamps, and one can assume, it is American made, because the bag shaped grips probably by Allen.
A rare pistol in fine condition    $2,500.
