These percussion pistols were made by the famous gunsmith Henry Nock in the 19th century. Henry Nock was famous for his inventive designs and was most active during the Napoleonic Wars, where he supplied the British Military with weapons. Because of their small size they are known as “coat pistols” or “pocket pistols.” These pistols in particular have a drop trigger design; this means the triggers are contained within the pistol until the hammer is cocked. At which point they drop down and are able to be pulled.
