Captain Antoni Selin's Holster Pistol
Circa 1777

One of our most important finds in our Revolutionary War research into the service of Antoni Selin in America's fight for freedom has been this flintlock dragoon side arm. The photographs have been graciously provided by it's owner and decendent of Captain Selin, Nick Thompson whom we are greatly indebted to for the opportunity of being able to post these historical photographs.

Due to considerable amount of wear in the muzzle it is difficult to ascertain what the caliber was of it's smoothbore. It now measures 15 /16 " across the muzzle. We have not had an opportunity to get a micrometric measurement from further down the bore. Additional measurements are as follows: overall length 15"
barrel length is slightly less than 9"
