"CONFEDERATE ALTERATION OF MARTIAL FLINT PISTOL. SN NSN. Cal. 54. Mr. Michel in his notes describes this Model 1836 U.S. martial pistol as follows: "This alteration to percussion uses a snail-shaped bolster similar to pistols altered by J. P. Murray of Columbus, Georgia, but this pistol does not have the same marking on bottom of bbl, and in bbl channel as has the alteration currently attributed to Murray. Lockplate has been replaced with a civilian-type plate marked 'O. Mazange & Co. / Mobile'." This is a very unusual pistol. Not only does it exhibit Confederate alteration, it also exhibits a civilian lock and hammer with a Mobile, Alabama agent. You will never have the opportunity to buy such a rare and uniquely marked gun. CONDITION: Bbl, lock, backstrap, and trigger guard are all brown with scattered pitting. Stock retains orig inspection cartouches when this gun was orig made as a military flint. Loading assembly appears to be restored. 4-31361 JS177 (3,000-5,000)"
