I am attempting to find as much as I can about a flintlock

Customer Question

I am attempting to find as much as I can about a flintlock pistol I inherited. The barrel is approx. 14" long and there are some stamps on the side plate and the loading bar. Everything appears to be original and in working order.

Good evening...........is there any writing on the gun?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
No, only a stamp next to the trigger which appears to be a V and a R and what looks like a chicken underneath it. Also, the loading rod has a stamp that looks like a paw and another mark which is unclear.

Do you have any photos of the gun and markings?

I've been trying to research those marks....not finding too much.

There is some speculation that my great uncle brought this back after WWII from France if that's any help.
