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: Antique 1821 Flintlock Black Powder Pistol Hand Gun, Bolky.com Antiques, Collectibles & Much More!
