Pistol, Robertson’s Percussion Target Pistol Probably Haddington, Scotland, right facing

Measurement: .48-caliber smooth bore; Overall length: 16.5"; barrel length: 10”

Material: Walnut stock

Condition: Overall condition is very good…period conversion. Barrel has chocolate
patina throughout with scattered bright areas on underside before the Schnabel. Lock
and trigger guard display a smooth gunmetal gray surface. The stock is nice with only
trivial bumps and bruises consistent with age and use, rich color, and patina. Action is
tight and smooth; bore is good with a minimum of oxidation.

Additional Information: Dovetailed blade front sight with notch rear sight on tang.
Octagonal barrel that had breech cut when converted to percussion and gold inlaid
band added to breech. Lock signed "ROBERTSON" and scroll engraved; tang and
trigger guard engraved en suite. Schnabel tipped forend stock with checkered pistol grip
and flared and carved butt.

A nice example of a pistol that someone clearly enjoyed enough to have it converted
when percussion ignition became the norm.
