A friend of mine asked me if I could find some information on a pistol that his father gave him more than 70 years ago. I know nothing about guns and have not seen the pistol, but here is his discription. A black powder single shot percussion type about 50 cal. with a rifeled barrel. There is a fold up knife or bayonet under the the barrel which pops up via the trigger. Markings on the gun are hard to read but it looks like caston pasingstoke. The person who directed me to this site offered that it might be Gaston and be of French make possibly a navy weapon. Any information would be most welcome as my friend is 84 and has always wondereed about this guns origin. Thanks and happy 4th to all!
