  1. I inherited these pistols from my grandfather. I am not sure of the details, but I believe they known as Queen Anne pistols because of the style they are made in. There is a strong chance that they were originally flintlocks and have been converted to percussion ignition. They have "turn off" cannon barrels. Under each barrel you can see a lug; the guns would have been supplied with a tool like a ring spanner that slid down the barrel and engaged the lug, enabling he barrel to be unscrewed. There are proof marks under the barrel indicating British manufacture, on you can see from the photos there is the inscriptions of "Richards" and "London" on the pistols. I am told there were a few "Richards" making guns in London around the turn of the eighteenth century. Best guess is a manufacturing date of 1780 -1820. Here is a link to the entire online photo album: https://flic.kr/s/aHskSPFBoj Price is $1,800 shipped. Payment is US Postal Money Order. Feel free to ask any questions about these pistols.
