    Does anyone recognize these markings? This is on an over and under percussion cap pistol which I recently acquired. Any assistance would be appreciated!
  2. Black Powder Shooting / Muzzleloaders / Handguns
    I am looking for help learning more about this pair of pistols. First, I know very little about flintlocks. My brother-in-law acquired these about 10 years ago and recently gave them to me as a gift. They have many of the same markings and there looks to be writing or Roman numerals across the...

    Hello I am helping a friend get some information on this beautiful old gun from her father's home. Looks like a 20 gauge in size, no marks besides just two little stamps on the left barrell. Seeking any help for information or direction to information. Sincerely Jesse .

    New member today, very first post... I recently inherited an Iver Johnson hammerless .32 (I think) 5 shot revolver. Owl is looking forward and there's a leaf spring under the hand grip, so I'm confident it's a black powder revolver. SN B109XX is stamped under the butt and patents are stamped...

It is double barrel, it has a golden stamp it looks like of a bird on it - possibly a game gun. Has the words 'W Mills Improv'd' on each side of the gun, has a picture of a dog...

    Hello. I joined in hopes of learning more about cowboy action shooting. I've done a ton of research and have some modification ideas for my new replica 1851 Colt Navy and quite a few questions.
