Flintlock Lantern Pistol

When a photo of this little jewel wandered across my Facebook feed recently, I figured it would be one of those vague things of which I would find photos everydamnwhere, but no real info.

Happily, I was wrong.

Turns out, this delightful and inventive old gun is currently listed as available on the Proxibid auction website. Sweet!

Unlike other flintlock muzzleloading pistols, this one has a vertical grip that comes UP from the rear of the barrel. The grip has finger grooves and a trigger, which is apparently linked to the gun’s action via a link running down through the grip.

A large trigger guard extends in front of the grip, encompassing all of the user’s fingers.

In front of the trigger guard is a lamp, described by the auction company as “an iron lamp with candle holder and lens, with opening screen and double cover.”

Manufacture date is estimated as “circa 1800.”[quote]
