|GEORGE WASHINGTON PISTOL FRAMED SET 27-350
George Washington's favorite flintlock pistol handsomely mounted on our deluxe wood frame with our lion shield pistol hangers. Depicted on the frame is the famous engraving of Washington crossing the Delaware and a reproduction of his signature on a brass plate. Frame size: 18" x 7". The set features George Washington's favorite pistol, the original of which was made in London in 1748 by Hawkins, one of the best known gunmakers of the period, still survives as a national treasure.
Elegant in its design, the gun combines simple, clean lines with tasteful silver decoration. This non-firing replica has all of the features of the original, including the George Washington nameplate on the grip. The pistol features a full length wood stock with antique brass finish barrel, antiqued black lock plate and hammer assembly, complemented with simulated silver butt plate, trigger guard and beautifully ornate and detailed stock furniture. Rotate the frizzen, cock the hammer, and pull the trigger – the hammer falls just as it did for George Washington more than 250 years ago.
