Type used in the boot of stage coaches and buckboards and depicted as the most feared weapon in cowboy movies, too many to count! 31 ¼” total length. 16” tapered .65 cal. barrel with sighting top flat, unmarked. Percussion, “take down” with the barrel removable by pulling the ram rod and lifting it out. Plain iron lock. Nicely decorated brass furniture. Unparalleled character with wear and dark patina throughout. A shallow splinter along the top of the right fore end well-worn over from use with that loss. The butt dark, evidently lightly charred from poking in a camp fire. Straight out of the American frontier and nothing short of iconic.
