Mdl.1842 U.S Pistol
Mdl.1842 U.S Pistol

This is a truly outstanding  Indian used  pistol.  At one time it was decorated with 48 squire shanked tacks and now has 7 remaining .  The design on the trigger guard finial appears to be a Turtle shell. The overall condition is typical  Indian hard use.  At one time the stock handle had a piece of rawhide through it . Interestingly , the action still works .  This model is the first percussion pistol to get a government contract.  It's lock is signed U.S-H. Aston-Middtn-Conn-1849.  This is one of the best Indian pistols I've ever offered for sale.  

Price: $3,500.00
