Please click the image for a larger version
Beautiful pair of Belgian turn-off barrel box lock pistols with original mould/tool. 2-5/8" octagon barrels, about 7" overall, about .44 caliber bores. Barrels have excellent damascus twist finish, frames are polished bright and engraved overall with scroll engraving. Grip butts have nicely shaped and engraved German silver caps. Grips are fine grained dark wood, shell carved by the frames, and nicely carved overall. One grip has a small repaired chip near the frame. Both function with barrels and nipples that turn, one pistol is a little unsure of holding at full cock and sometimes does not. Sold as a collector item only, not warranted safe to shoot.
