French & Indian War - Queen Anne Pistol
French & Indian War - Queen Anne Pistol

This is a screw barrel  Queen Anne  pistol by Richard Wilson.  It's the hardest variation with the half stock to find. Refer to page 154 in George Newmann's The history of Weapons of the American Revolution for a similar model. The pistol is in fine+ condition with a smooth crisp action.  The lock is signed Wilson and the 7" barrel has his R W under an astrick along with British proofs and London on the top. Richard Wilson made arms from the early 18th century until his death in 1766.  The furniture is Silver as is the grotesque mask butt cap.  A handsome pistol that would fit nicely in any quality 18th century collection.
