Original Pair of Balkan Greek Style Metal Stock Flintlock “Aegean Pirate” Pistols - circa 1800-1820

Item Description

Original Items: One Matched Pair Only. Here are a very fine pair of Balkan all metal flintlock pirate pistols made very much in the Greek style of the time. The lovely stocks are made entirely of a low grade silver alloy, and are fitted with typical flintlock steel mechanisms. Measuring 20" in overall length with 12 1/2" silver inlaid iron barrels, these are highly decorated and look great!

When first acquired, the pistols were heavily tarnished, from which a rich silver glow soon emerged with light polishing. However we noticed that they start tarnishing very quickly after cleaning. Completely decorated overall, with one trigger repaired using copper long ago.

The barrels are each also inlaid with pure silver in intricate designs, and there are faux ramrods as part of the front barrel cladding. These lovely pistols date to around 1800 - 1820, and are typical of the type of weapons used by the Aegean pirates in the eastern Mediterranean. The flintlocks mechanisms themselves are well made, and still functional, though one will not hold at full cock, and requires a tumbler adjustment.

A good quality pair of nice metal stocked "pirate" pistols. Ready to display!
