"CONFEDERATE ALTERATION OF MARTIAL FLINT PISTOL. Mr. Michel describes this gun as follows: "This brazed bolster alteration to percussion of a Model 1836 pistol is similar to the work done by Adams except that the bolster, instead of resting atop the orig lockplate, is inlet into the lockplate. The 3 faceted bolster is similar to the bolster used on alterations of Virginia Manufactory muskets believed to be the work of Francis Persignon of Richmond, Virginia. All parts of this pistol are marked with the combination of Roman numerals found on Adams' alterations, in this case VI and IX. Lockplate still shows traces of orig. Asa Waters marking." This pistol appears orig, authentic, and complete in every regard. CONDITION: All metal is cleaned bright with scattered pitting. Because of cleaning, lock markings are weak, as are bbl proofs. Stock is sanded, though sound, exhibiting one hairline crack behind lock. Cartouches are discernible, as are initials carved on right hand side of grip. 4-31356 JS180 (3,000-5,000)"
