Flintlock Mediterranean pistol. 12-1/2" barrel of about .58 caliber bore, about 19-1/2" overall. Nicely engraved and sculpted metal parts with attractive patina overall. Stock is wire inlaid in the grip (a few wires missing), including the split bladed Zulfiqar sword of Ali, given to him by Muhammad. Wood is beautifully carved overall and shows honest wear and use with small crack by lock screw and small crack at tip of forearm on right side. Mechanically good, sold as a collector item only, not warranted safe to shoot.
