Need more info and could be a dueling set.

Being a pair of flintlocks doesn't male 'em dueling pistols. Those came in boxes and were literally matched sets.
We can't arbitrarily assume that they are not dueling pistols. I see properties that do point to them being a set of dueling pistols. Yes, dueling pistols did come in a box with accessories but for one reason or another, they got separated. At any rate there is more information that is needed. I would date these somewhere in the mid to late 1700's. …..

Look in the bore and tell me if you see any rifling. Also the presents or absents of sights. Send us more pictures. …..

Be Safe !!!
