EARLY c19th FLINTLOCK PISTOL WITH BRASS STUDDING

This pistol seems to have had an interesting history with perhaps a good story behind it if only it could speak. It is a Belgian Sea Service pistol which has been customised with good brass studding and the addition of a ramrod. As these pistols were widely available to all European seamen during the Napoleonic Wars period the story could be one of capture and customisation by anyone or customisation on purchase. Who knows, but it is , for us 200 years later, a handsome piece of history.

Walnut stock Brass fittings and trigger guard. All over quality brass studwork. Underbarrel ramrod and steel lanyard rings.
