Anyone bought one of these cheapies from SOG?? Price is $50


S.O.G. has come up with a limited run of an authentic replica of original 19th century screw-barrel boot pistols made in Europe and the United States. This model was extremely popular in those times as a backup weapon carried in the belt or boot. These pistols were used by people of all walks of life, from English aristocrats while horseback riding, to saloon ruffians, who would just as often whip a man with it for cheating at cards, as he would use it to defend his life. These pistols were also popular with sailors for close quarter deck fighting. The pistol pictured on the right is an original that has a value of over $1000.00, in excellent condition. Original specimens in this condition are extremely rare to find. Now, you can own the same pistol for a fraction of that price.

The Richardson boot pistol is a .36 caliber, smooth bore, percussion pistol. The barrel and frame are all-steel construction, with brass accents on the gripcap, frame, trigger guard, and barrel ferrel. Uses standard black powder or Pyrodex and #11 caps. A great black powder plinker!
