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".

On my phone, they definitely look Damascus.
