English Officers Pistol – French & Indian War period, by GRIFFIN

This pistol was made by Griffin of London and is of the 1750’s period. The 8″ barrel has  Griffin’s  name and proof mark plus 2 English proofs.  The brass furniture is engraved with a floral pattern on the butt cap and a snowflake pattern on the trigger guard. The lock is also marked Griffin and is still in it’s original flintlock configuration and hasn’t been fooled with in any way. The stock is in good shape except for a small period chip on the bottom of the left grip.  It exhibits a period repair to a crack at the wrist, using hand made squire head nails. The fact that this was done during it’s period of use does add some charm to the gun. This is a good French & Indian War gun.
