Cased J Lang Double-Barrel Carriage Pistol

50 caliber, 3.75" barrels, S/N 1251. A spectacular cased double-barrel percussion carriage pistol by J. Lang, Haymarket London. The back-action locks are superbly engraved. The ramrod is also engraved at the tip. Contains a full walnut stock with checkering. Wooden case with full Lang maker's label. Original key and ramrod oil bottle. Nipple wrench and screwdriver present. The exterior of case is fine, with one tight crack in lid (does not detract). This splendid small carriage pistol would be impossible to upgrade.

Condition:

Preserved in virtually pristine mint condition throughout. The back-action retains nearly all their original dull case colors. The push-on safeties retain all their original brilliant niter blue. The barrels retain virtually all of their original magnificent Damascus brown finish. The triggerguard retains nearly all of its original brilliant peacock blue. The pineapple finial retains much of its original dull grey case colors. The steel buttcap retains all of its original vibrant case colors. The stirrup ramrod has much original blue. The muzzles have most of their original bright polish with only minor staining. The figured walnut full stock retains nearly all its original varnish, with only the slightest marks. Checkering is as crisp as the day it left J. Lang's workshop. The case is in excellent condition throughout. Three-way leather flask retains nearly all its original bright polish - leather is perfect. Mold is bright with some staining. Interior of box with only minor imperfections.
