    I have been searching everywhere but I am unable to locate any decent information on this pistol I got at an estate sale. It looks to be made of brass and weighs a few pounds and 13 inches long, the strike piece that it would hit is broken off. I don't know if this is an antique really old toy? a black powder pistol? the value? the age? (It says 1821 I believe on the top of it but not positive)

    Any information would be awesome, if your interested in it I would cut you an incredible deal if you helped me out. The pictures of it are here:

    Neither one, it's a decorator item.
