Jim, Don't have a photo, but if you give me a phone number I'll have a friend send you one. Same friend found the pistol on a tablet that said this type of pistol was from Harpers ferry and they were dated 1805 thru 1807 and considered rare. The picture on the tablet looked exactly like my pistol, but article didn't comment on possible value. If you have an associate or friend in Phoenix area I won't mind taking it to him. I'm looking for 80% value. Thanks Rick

Rick,

Unfortunately, photos have to be posted here. Can you friend send the photos to you so that you can post them here?

I'll get an updated phone to take the picture. Should be able to send to you on Monday 1st Feb. Thanks. Would call, but I can't find any new information on the pistol.
Firearms Expert: ProShooter, Firearms Instructor replied 2 years ago

OK, no rush

I think we sent you a photo subject 1804 pistol. I've tried this several ways. Do I have to have a phone with an E-mail app?
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
Jim, sorry this is so difficult. One of my efforts to send picture was by my wife's phone. Received something from you perhaps part of a phone number. VVD *** ****. Please send on this page if possible.
Firearms Expert: ProShooter, Firearms Instructor replied 2 years ago

I received the photo today. Its a bit blurry, but it looks to be in nice shape, which worries me a bit. These guns are quite often copied as replica pistols, and its nearly impossible for me to tell by looking at a photo. Is there a chance that you can get a photo of the writing on the pistol? That may be helpful.

Jim, sent three pictures to the reply address. Sorry evidently my computer or service won't handle three pictures at once. Thanks, Rick
Firearms Expert: ProShooter, Firearms Instructor replied 2 years ago

Ok, let me see what we can find.

Rick,

I hadn't received any new photos. Not sure where they went. I will let customer service know to cancel.
