    Gun Trigger Guard?

    Hello All!

    I’m wondering if this is a gun or pistol trigger guard of some sort, where the trigger itself would’ve come through.

    Thanks in advance,

    Buck

    I don't believe it is either. But, as I don't know what it is I cannot say definitely not a trigger plate.

    It does appear the side opposite the screw inset holes are beveled at the ends of the slot. That may indicate a thumb wheel or some such was under the plate. Just a guess.

    America was founded by tough hell-raisers. Rugged citizens who evaded taxes, spoke strongly against tyranny, grew tobacco, brewed beer, distilled spirits, and smuggled weapons. And it will be saved by those same types of citizens.

    I think you’ve found part of a brass boxlock pistol. If I’m correct, it’s the top of the gun where that the hammer comes through. It could be from a percussion or flintlock pistol. Nice find.

    I would never have gone there but I believe that's what it is...

    Shazam! I stand corrected.

    Y'all are incredible. Thank you! I had a bit of a hunch but it was great to see it confirmed! That shape is so distinctive, I wonder if some of these that are dug aren't identified correctly. Thank you again!!

    Cheers,

    Buck
