Trying to identify this English flintlock pistol marked "Tatham & Egg, London." I really think it's either a reproduction, or worse, an intentional fake. Any help is appreciated. Thank You.

Some of the parts may be replacements. The name is in an odd place for this type of pistol, though it looks like an old engraving and might be original. With these reservations, my general opinion is that it's an antique British, screw barrel, muff pistol from the early 1800's.

Welcome to TFF.

It looks genuine to me, although in poor condition, and the grip is likely a replacement.

It also may have had a ramrod held by thimbles under the barrel.

Edit: On second thought, what looks like part of a missing thimble may be a lug for a barrel wrench.

Henry Tatham of London was in partnership with Joseph Egg 1804-1816.
