It's time for June's #ArtifactoftheMonth! This is an excellent example of a firearm used by early fur trappers in the Western Frontier. It's unique as it features several advancements in technology. Among these features is a very unique safety mechanism which keeps the hammer from striking where the percussion cap would be, keeping the gun from firing. Another unique quality are the markings that indicate that it was produced in a factory rather than in a local gunsmith’s shop.

A six shot pepperpot percussion cap pistol, No makers marks but has British proofing and view marks on the multi barrel.

Has a W engraved on side of trigger and usual scrolling pattern on frame associated with these type of pistols.
