  • Description:

    Antique English Officers pistol built by Thomas Barnett, gunmaker, Minories, London 1796-1810.  This is a better grade pistol with a platinum-lined vent and blade front sight. The lock shows the makers name Barnett with leaf engraving on the plate and cock.  It also shows a slide bar safety.  The walnut stock shows a checkered butt and engraved steel triggerguard with a pineapple finial.  This piece shows a belt or sash hook.  The finish is an overall dark brown petina.  The only pitting is in the pan area of the touch hole and barrel.  A nice example of a late 1890's English Officers pistol.  The left side of the forestock shows a repaired sliver adjoining the barrel.
