Description

Largest selection of genuine antique weapons for sale in UK. See our website andrewbottomley.com. Ref 1885. A scarce under-hammer 4 barrelled Mariette ring-trigger Percussion pepper-box revolver. Manufactured in Liege circa 1835-1845. The 4 screw-off barrels individually numbered 1 to 4. Decorative engraving to the frame. Walnut grips. Liege proof marks. The pepper-box was invented circa 1837 and was intended for civilian use, but military officers often made private purchases for their own use. The design spread rapidly in the United Kingdom, the United States and some parts of continental Europe. Originally these pistols were muzzle loaders, but in 1837 the Belgian gunsmith Mariette invented a hammerless pepperbox with a ring trigger and turn-off barrels that could be unscrewed. Action works fine. Some minor damage to the rear of each chamber where the hammer has been dry-fired, otherwise in good condition. Overall length 7.5 inches. Ref 1885. A very scarce type. This is an obsolete antique pistol and is sold as a collectors item only.No Licence is required in the United Kingdom. This is an obsolete antique item and is sold as a collectors item only.
