Those are as nice as it gets.  I thought most Hawken Pistols were percussion.

Say, any of you boys smithies? Or, if not smithies per se, were you otherwise trained in the metallurgic arts before straitened circumstances forced you into a life of aimless wanderin'?

In light of the recent discussion on where the flint strikes the frizzen, it is interesting to note that on this pair.  Same kind of locks and flints seem to be similarly placed.

Big difference being they were hand made by Jud. They’re going to work perfectly.
