Price:  $1800.00

.45 cal, 5 inch octagon barrel, smooth bore, flat gray metal, walnut stock, brass furniture, German silver inlay with #5 on it, swivel style iron ram rod, circa 1830's.

Tryon made a line of deringers, most with round barrels and smaller caliber, this pistol has the same basic design but is more rugged and utilitarian, probably made for the western trade, the #5 on the escutchen may refer to the barrel length or a "model".

Condition: bore is clean with very little oxidation, iron is smooth, brass is aged mustard color, wood is sound and untouched, excellent mechanically, excellent marks.
