Firearm Question
#1
Can anyone recommend a site to look for info on an old muzzle loader I recently received. A friend returned from Afghanistan after her deployment and brought back a pistol as a gift. It is an old gun with "1818" stamped on it and some other symbols and images. I googled a few sites and they are mostly civil war stuff. Thanks.

Grew up in rural Ohio so I am familiar with firearms, but never seen anything like this.

I only wish that is all they were using.
All the white inlays are probably abalone or pearl.
With a little powder and wads with ball, I may actually
get this to work. It is very solid.
She went to a lot of trouble to bring this back. She did not
actually bring this back, she had to mail it, registered!
And the paper work .....

I have seen several of these guns.The flintlock lock its self looks like a beligum lock they exported thousnds of them all over the world.This is one of the nicer guns .I would guess the caliber to be between 62 to 69 cal.Look around on the metal to see if the letters E L G are stamped any place on the metal.

very nice gift! It's an copy or original of a 1818 Jezail flintlock gun. Highly collectible. All handmade. Could've been part of a pistol/ rifle set. I say a very nice copy. The Rampant lion trademark doesn't look right.

No E L G that I can find, just a lot of flowers (?) and symbols.
What is the purpose of this gadget that swings up in front of the muzzle?
The bore measures about 0.8 inches.
Thanks for your help.
