MASSIVE ANCIENT MATCHLOCK WALL GUN
Item # MR735
It had to have taken quite a few guys to carry this monster on the wall. The gun weighs 36 pounds and is 7 foot 3 inches long. We believe this is Chinese from somewhere about the 16 hundreds.?. The metal appears to be all original and has an ancient pitted patina but overall metal condition is quite good. The bbl is almost 6 feet long and has a slight blunder buss flared muzzle. At the end of the muzzle the bore diameter is just under an inch. There are several brass or copper bbl bands that hold this all together. The stock is evidently a replacement because I don't think the wood after 100's of years would be this good. Probably replaced in the last century. If you have a big wall and need a great conversation piece, this would be it!!

LINDSAY YOUNG AMERICA 2 SHOT POCKET PISTOL
Item # MHG510
Marking on the side is " Lindsay Young America Manufactured by J P Lindsay N Y". A very unique, rare and odd pocket pistol. It has a fluted bbl. Cal 41. Serial number 536. A rather strange concept. This is a dual hammer dual percussion with single bbl. The idea was that 2 complete charges were loaded in superposed fashion. (1 on top of the other) The trigger would discharge the hammer for the first load the farthest out. When the trigger was pulled again the second hammer would discharge the final round. It goes to show that just about everything was tried in building firearms! This gun is in exceptional condition with a bbl scene of a lion, eagle and just about everything else under the sun. The brass frame is scroll engraved. All metal is nice, smooth and clean. The grips on this old gun, which would pre date the Civil War, are exceptional. No chips and very nice. If you are looking for something different and cool, this is the gun!
