<P>Belgian Double Barrel Percussion Boot Pistol, .41 Caliber, 2 3/4" Round Barrels, Circa Mid 1800's.&nbsp; Has Belgian proof stamp on left side of frame near the left barrel, and is numbered&nbsp;55 on the underside of the frame just in front of the trigger guard.&nbsp; Left and right sides of the frame are engraved with open scrollwork, and the trigger guard&nbsp;has some engraved embellishment as well.&nbsp; Barrels are rifled, and are the screw off type but they are frozen in place.&nbsp; All metal finish is evenly grayed to a nice and pleasing patina, with no rust but there are 2 small gouges on the top of the left barrel and 3 small gouges on the underside of the left barrel which look like someone tried to unscrew the barrel at some point in time with a tool of some sort.&nbsp; The gouges are evenly patinaed matching the rest of the pistol.&nbsp; Wood grip still retains about 80%&nbsp;of its original finish, and there are some light dings from use as would be expected.&nbsp; Lock mechanism for both hammers is tight and solid and functions perfectly, and the springs for both hammers still strong.&nbsp; Hammers located on the top of the frame.&nbsp; Double triggers, one for each barrel.&nbsp; The nipples show a lot of use and the left nipple is battered down somewhat.&nbsp; Overall a very decent period pistol that will enhance any collection.&nbsp; Condition Very Good.&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;</P> <P>&nbsp;</P>
