The pistol has a pin-fastened, part-round/part-octagon French-made, 62 caliber, smoothbore barrel. The left barrel flat is stamped with a "Crown/FW" which is a French proofmark.
The lock plate bears markings associated with the French Creek Factory, flat with beveled edges and a distinct tail, a flat, reinforced cock with beveled edges, and a detachable brass pan.
The side plate and side plate screws are faintly stamped with a "7", the assembler's mark for armorer station #7 at the Continental Factory.
