Robert Johnson Flintlock Pistol, US Model 1836, Martially Marked, Dated 1842 Middletown, Connecticut

Exceptional Johnson Model 1836 .54-caliber flintlock martial pistol. Usual configuration with 8.5" round barrel, elliptical shaped brass front sight, iron furniture; crisp walnut stock, captive rammer, breech end of barrel displays usual markings: US / JH / P. Lockplate displays standard markings forward of hammer: “US” over “R. Johnson” over MIDDN CONN” over 1842. Left side flat of stock has two crisp cartouches and a tiny impressed “B”. Although large numbers of these pistols were made circa 1836 to 1844, they rarely are found as sharp and crisp as this example…retaining fine original finish. Possibly unfired or infrequently fired, the bore is superb; The barrel, rammer & furniture are in white finish; lockplate, hammer and frizzen display a beautiful even brown with smooth patina. The stock is sound with perhaps a few extremely minor shallow dings that are truly moot; retains virtually all its original finish. Mechanics are smooth and crisp.
