That is a beautiful smoke pole. Personally not a fan of that style butt.

Here's a photo of my Hawkins Trapper pistols sold by Traditions. They are .50 cal with 9 3/4 " barrels. The owners manual that came with them said they were usually used for self-defense back in the day. I got two of them because with their double set triggers, good balance and (for the period) target type sights, they reminded me a lot of the dueling pistols of the mid 1800's and we all know you can't have a proper duel with only one pistol!

Default Club Butt Dutchy

This is representative of a Club Butt Dutch Trade Gun/early Hudson Valley Fowler circa 1625-50 here in the US. It has the same lines as the Dutch military muskets of the period. The butt and lock style come from examples from Susquehana River and Rochester Museum excavations. Remember New Amsterdam!? The Seal of The City Of New York has a 1600's colonist w/a plumb-line, windmill, barrels of flour, a native indian w/bow, and beavers -- the fur trade was the biggest in the world and it was DUTCH (till the English took it in a war!). There were probably 100,000 of these guns here before by 1675 or so from Maine to Mississippi but there are none found in Europe.

This is a .62 smoothbore. Fowler if you will. 41-1/2" octagon to round barrel at an amazing 7-1/2 balanced lbs. overall.

Borrowed the closeups...

Default An Army Navy?

Yes. This is a new Pietta 1851 Navy in .44 w/12" barrel and adjustable sights. Just like the original! LOL Got it for a song because the barrel moves/won't sit back against the frame tightly. The slot in the Base Pin simply needs to be filed at the back about 1/64" so the Wedge can be driven in a little more and making her tight!

Here's my .45 Philadelphia derringer with the powder flask it came with. I got a pair of them back in the '80's from I guy I worked with for $50. I only have the one gun now after giving one to a son who had a particular liking for them. I'm not sure of the manufacturer but from what I've seen, it was probably made in Spain. The original Philadelphia Deringer's were small, percussion handguns designed by Henry Deringer and produced from 1852 through 1868. It's actually the same style (at least from the photo's I've seen) as the gun used by Booth to kill Lincoln.

Damn that thing is cute. I want one. Reminds me of an old gamblers boot pistol I traded a while back.

I occasionally see them for sale online for around $100, sometimes more, sometimes less depending on the particular seller and manufacturer. Since it's a BP pistol, in most states they can be ordered online and be sent through the mail to you directly.

Default Modern Remington New Model Army

This is an Armi San Marco reproduction Civil War Remington New Model Army revolver made in stainless steel. Nice looking and good material albeit not exactly period correct.

The original .44's where a fine arm and, with their topstrap, much preferred over their Colt counterpart. I bought this from a poster on another forum -- I didn't need it and only half wanted it, but I do have quite a few variations of these guns, which is fun, and the seller desparately needed the cash so the gun found a good home.

Speaking of Remington revolvers, here's my little Remington .32 pocket pistol with my larger .44 cal '58 Remington revolvers made by Pietta. I also have conversion cylinders for both the 7" & 5" guns as well as the original BP cylinders. Actually, I have three conversion cylinders, two in 45 LC and one in 45 ACP.
