"CONFEDERATE ALTERATION OF MARTIAL FLINT PISTOL. SN NSN. Cal. 54. Mr. Michel, in his notes, describes this gun as follows: "This brazed bolster alteration varies from alterations done by Adams in that the bolster is inlet into the lockplate rather than resting atop the plate and is larger than the bolsters employed by Adams. The assembly number '6' is also different from the Roman numerals used by Adams. The lockplate has remnants of the orig markings indicating this pistol was made by Johnson rather than Waters." You are bidding on an unusual Virginia brazed bolster conversion with an interesting and presentable blacksmith-style hammer. CONDITION: Metal surfaces all cleaned gray/bright and pitted. Markings are well-struck and discernible. Stock has numerous scratches, dings, and gouges, though residual cartouches are present. Mainspring is broken. Hammer screw is a replacement. 4-31358 JS182 (3,000-5,000)"
