1780 Federal Pistol
Oak Stock; .32 Caliber - 8" Barrel;
This was my first pistol. All I had was a chunk of oak and a piece of cut off gun barrel I got from my friend Bookie. The trigger was forged and I used a Becky lock due to it's small size. The nose cap is poured pewter. This was my fourth gun.
My father in-law commissioned me to make it for him. His initials are "JLW"; note the engraving was period correct. The "J"s look like "I"s back then. He had it until his passing a few years ago. Now my son Scott is the proud owner of this fine pistol. It is already a family legacy and it shoots a tight group, too.
