1800's? Repros? dueling pistols Triggers drop down when cocked.

Double barrel
Actually have a phillips head somewhere on the gun.
Can't find any markings
When you "cock" (whats the correct word here? lol) the gun, the triggers (2) drop down from the bottom.

Anyone seen these before, would these be real? Any ideas on anything to look at.

Thanks again forum!

That flat head doesn't look original to me and i would guess the phillips isn't either. The non-original parts probably sap most of any value. May have value as parts though.

Do look interesting, which is why I really comment, and I don't really know what I am talking about.

Not dueling pistols, they are pocket pistols made and sold in many countries. They are still made in centerfire versions for countries where citizens are not allowed to own repeating handguns.
