Antique obsolete calibre British and European pistols:

History has provided us with a vast wealth of antique pistols, some good, some not so good, some downright bizarre. Great thing is that the ammo is no longer available so officially classed as obsolete (there is, in fact, a long list of maker/models available from the Home Office) so they are still live but no license is required, though you must be over 18 to own one.

Epic Remington .44 model 1858 revolver, Civil war pistol of choice, obsolete calibre:

just epic - a big .44 6 shot Remington form the early 1860`s.

This one is good overall condition with some signs of age and plenty of use over the years. You can still just make out the tiny "PATENTED SEPT. 14, 1858 E.REMINGTON & SONS.ILION NEWYORK.U.S.A." on the top of the barrel so this is a Newyork gun.
