Egg flintlock pistols

Manufactured by Joseph Egg c.1820 in London, England - serial number 2476.
.57 caliber over-under twin gold-inlayed damascus steel barrels, flintlock muzzleloaders, single trigger firing each barrel in turn.

Something about pairs of handguns instantly make them immensely cooler, even though chances are they were never used, let alone dual-wielded.

Hall M1819 flintlock obrez

Designed by John Hancock Hall c.1811, manufactured c.1820~30′s by the Harpers Ferry Arsenal in West Virginia.
.525 caliber ball, single shot flintlock breechloader, Native American decoration.

The Hall rifle in its less altered form was the first breechloading long arm to be adopted my a military, beating the Dreyse M1821 needle rifle by two years. This one has gotten some work done to itself and I love it.

Tryon superposed loads pistol

Manufactured by one Tryon in Philadelphia c.1810′s.
.46 caliber 5 shots loaded front to back, flintlock muzzleloader.

A very early sort-of-repeating pistol from the United States, capable with enough luck of shooting five times in a row as fast as you can prime it. To use this weapon, its user would load it like normal, and then four time over, with careful attention so that each powder charge lines up with a touch hole. Starting with the front shot, the gun is half-cocked, primed, cocked and then fired. Afterward, the user lifted the next dust cover thingy, which simultaneously reveals the touch hole and allows the full flintlock mechanism to slide back in line with the second shot. Then priming happens again.
