Intercontinental twin barrel pistol.

I recently picked up a twin barrelled .45 cal.percussion pistol that has "Made in Italy for Intercontinental Arms Inc." stamped on the barrel and it has all the usual date and proof stampings. The serial number is less than 5000.
I need to get some new nipples for it because the hole through them is drilled straight through and is so large that when the gun is fired the cap flies off and re-cocks the hammer.
I am hoping that someone has experience with this type of gun because it also needs some trigger work and I am not confident about taking it apart.

Thats a .45 cal? it looks like a sawed off shotgun :confused: the openings look larger for some reason.

The barrels are rifled and thin which makes it look bigger, it is quite accurate which is why I want to fix it up.

It's pretty cool whatever it is! Looks like a mini-howdah pistol.

damoc..yours has the same (or similar) hammers and trigger guard but mine doesn't have a ram rod.
The locks have only one screw holding them together and it looks like two pins that go through both sides for alignment....kind of worried about springs going sproing if I open it up.

that one screw is all that holds it together that part is easy it will come apart
as 2 seperate locks but adjusting the trigger pull meant pulling apart the locks which was
not real hard either your worst problem may be getting the 2 screws holding the lock
together out without stripping them its a very simple lock setup

I don't see what the problem is; auto cocking should be standard on all pistols.

Just kidding, cool looking pistol.

I had one of those in the late 60's and it shot .43 balls with pillow ticking quite well at 7 to 10 yds, good enough to kill a few rabbits, but it also had a really hard right trigger pull. usually used the left barrel for hunting. I was a teen then and had no knowledge of the workings and didn't want to mess with it. Put it away when I went into the USAF and it disappeared along the way, kind of miss it!:confused:
