Original Pre Civil War Palmetto Armory M1842 .54 cal Pistol with heavy honest usage in service but still display very well. Has a beautiful overall patina with very attractive brass. The rear of the lockplate is marked Columbia, SC 1852. Has the Palmetto Armory Stamp with a faint Pametto Tree on the center of the lock. The mechanics are fully functional but has a weak main spring. The walnut stock is in good shape but shows lots of wear. Has a repaired crack under the hammer to the back of the grip. Also a repair between the lockplate and the barrel band and some shrinkage along the backstrap of the handle. The smoothbore barrel is full length and has the front brass sight. Complete with an iron ramrod. The firing nipple has been replaced. A great deal on a Confederate Handgun. Please see all photos and call or write for information and payment options.
