Old pistol found in roof space, any ideas of age etc?

Post by erm1969 »

This is not a detecting find, but thought somebody might be able to help.

A friend found this pistol between the gable and roof of his old stone cottage (in North Argyll, Scotland). It was wrapped in a plaid material that disintegrated in his hands. It's a lovely piece to handle, the ramrod and firing mechanism still move freely and the flint is till in place. I know nothing about firearms so would appreciate any help with date,ID etc.

Many thanks, Ewan
