Original item: Only One Available. This is absolutely exceptional! A full Flintlock Holster pistol measuring over 20" in length, fitted with a 13 1/4" barrel, the front 7" of it sheathed entirely in embossed sheet silver. It has a lovely engraved lock plate with heavy maker's touch mark to rear of the barrel. The trigger guard is also made of engraved steel. The entire grip, side plate and ramrod pipe are covered in solid silver ball decoration, incorporating pieces of Coral and silver diamond shaped plates covered in Niello work.
