Outstanding US Model 1836 Flintlock Pistol by Asa Waters, Millbury, Dated 1842
In Almost Unused Condition, the gun appears to be unfired! - SOLD
The Model 1836 pistols manufactured by Waters generally saw much use (unlike those by Johnson, many of which were not used) therefore it is very unusual to find a Waters pistol in truly nice condition…a great collector’s specimen. A clean example...the lock is clearly marked A. WATERS – MILLBURY, MS. - 1842; the left rear of barrel is marked at breech: US over NWP over P. The wood is excellent, sharp contours; great grain, two good cartouches on the left side: JH and WAJ. This example is in original flint; rammer assembly is original. All metal parts in very good bright condition with some scattered and minor dark mottling…miniscule shallow smooth pitting at right side of .54-caliber 8.5-inch barrel, above rammer assembly which we mention for accuracy; doesn’t distract or compromise. Brass blade front and "U" notch rear sights; detachable brass flash pan; swiveling ramrod, single barrel band attached to the side plate. Mechanically excellent, smooth and tight action.
