Model 1842 U.S. Martial Pistol by Henry Aston Dated 1852

.54 caliber, 8.5" barrel. A much better than average example of this common type. The barrel with the usual markings and the addition of MS. Tang and lock dated 1852. Walnut stock with good inspector's marks. 


Barrel has been polished to bright. Lock has been polished to bright. Trigger exhibits some original bluing. Full dimension stock is extremely crisp with no appreciable dents and only one insignificant chip just forward of the lockplate. Action is crisp as new. Bore is excellent. A very attractive example.
