Rare 1st Model Virginia Manufactory Pistol. 70 caliber, 12 1/2 inch barrel. This model was made 1805-1811 and is probably the largest single shot pistol produced in America. 

The pistol has a round smoothbore barrel marked at the breech with a partially visible "P". The flat lockplate has beveled edges and is marked "VIRGINIA / Manufactory" in the center and "RICHMOND / 180-(9?)" at the tail. Standard First Model iron mounts and backstrap. Full length plain walnut stock with modern replaced iron ramrod.

Barrel and all iron components have been heavily cleaned and show pitting throughout. Lock is in its original flintlock configuration, markings show some wear and cock is a modern replacement. Stock shows scattered areas of chipping around lock and a small crack at the tail. An honest example of a rare and early Virginia Manufactory pistol.
