If this is a dueling pistol it will be a smooth bore. From what I see that is a Traveling Pistol not a Dueler. Nice gun.

Nice, fer sure. A classic representation and an asset to anyone's collection. And if you argue with me I'll slap you with a mitten and have seconds on the apple pie, or something like that.

It is a smoothbore, and seems adheres to all the rules of dueling.. Whats a "traveling" pistol?

Men who rode in stages in Europe often carried a pair or cased set of loaded pistols. These guns are often confused with the dueling pistol. I notice your pistol has a rear sight. Most of the deuling pistols I have seen only had front sights.
