Customer Question
I am attempting to find...
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 reply replied 2 years 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.

There is some speculation that my great uncle brought this back after WWII from France if that's any help.
Firearms Expert: ProShooter, Firearms Instructor replied 2 years ago
