Description
A lovely original late 18th century duelling or target pistol in full working condition with 10 inch octagonal smooth bored barrel, border engraved lock which is indistinctly signed possibly Green Pickst....., chequered walnut grip and shield shape vacant cartouche. Wooden ram rod is probably a replacement. Nb. This is an obsolete calibre pistol and is therefore classed by the Home Office as a collector's item. There is no necessity to own a firearms license to sell or own this piece. I only sell weapons to UK residents.

declaration

Mantiques Bazaar has clarified that the Late 18th Century Flintlock Duelling or Target Pistol (LA424005) is genuinely of the period declared with the date/period of manufacture being Late 18th century

condition

Good working order. Cocks in both positions with a crisp action. For the age it is in remarkably good condition with just general wear and tear commensurate with age. There is a very small piece of wood missing near the barrel. At some stage in the past the gun and barrel have had a dark stain applied, this was often done years ago by gun collectors. This could be removed but in my opinion it isn't unattractive and is part of it's history and patina.
