Please click the image for a larger version
Flintlock Mediterranean pistol. 11-3/4" barrel with fancy gold overlay of about .58 caliber bore, about 19" overall. Metal parts are cleaned overall with minimal scattered pitting. Stock is nicely carved and wire inlaid with the split bladed Zulfiqar sword of Ali, given to him by Muhammad. Wood shows average wear and use with some chipping around the buttcap, rear of lock mortise, and where the forearm meets the barrel band. Mechanically good, sold as a collector item only, not warranted safe to shoot.
