Uriell, D. 20190620-1

Presented here is a "Bear Pistol"; presumably Southern. As to the pistol: barrel is 12 inches in length; overall under 18 inches. Lock plate is marked C. Robbins, a lock maker who worked between 1830 and 1834. Plate was made for a flintlock, but has been changed for percussion. Trigger and trigger plate are made of brass and guard is thin brass. Stock is maple wood and inlays are German Silver. Initials 'D U' are engraved on the plate which are probably the maker's. Sellers lists a D. Uriell in his list book, but has no location for that individual. Barrel is rifled and is about .36 caliber.
