Default Old Pistol

I have this double barrel percussion cap pistol. My dad got it for free for plowing a driveway when he was in his 20s. I want to see if anybody can tell me anything about it.

They were commonly called "muff pistols". do a google on that to get info. Most were made from about 1850 to about 1875. Not very pricey.

Be careful googling anything containing the word "muff".
