    Hello,
    First time caller here....hey, I have a Tower flintlock lock that has the proper stamp and cypher as well as several stamps on the back, including the name "wheeler". I believe it to be authentic, but for the life of me, cannot find a gun that it belongs to. I thought it was a pistol, but it is 5 3/8" long and doesn't seem to fit anything.

    can someone shed some light on what I have here?

    It looks authentic to me as well but, I am not the one to trust when it comes to the old British martial arms....or any other country. Be patient, there is several on the forum who are.
