Continental percussion boxlock pistol with spring loaded bayonet below barrel. No markings except Belgian ELG* proof and numeral 3 on right side of barrel. 4-1/2" octagon barrel, about 9" overal, about .50 caliber bore. Metal parts have a medium patina with nice engraving on the frame. Nicely checkered wood grip is very good, attractive varnished finish, and a couple minor hairline cracks hiding in the checkering. The bayonet blade is about 2-3/4" long and springs and locks into place when the triggerguard is pulled back. Mechanically good, sold as a collector item only, not warranted safe to shoot.
