Henry Nock (1741–1804) was a British inventor and engineer of the Napoleonic period, best known as a gunsmith. As well as supplying the military and civilian markets, Nock made expensive pieces for the aristocracy and Royalty and was an appointed gunmaker to the King. Nock's business eventually became Wilkinson Sword. This is a good original Flintlock Holster Pistol By Nock. It is 15” overall length with a 9” steel barrel. The top of the barrel has faint ‘London’ and crisp proofs. The pistol is un-sighted. Its smooth bore has staining and residue consistent with age and use. The metal work has even patina. The original Walnut full stock furniture has just the bumps and bruises to be expected with age and use. The wood has several inscribed marks illustrated inset in image 2. It has a brass trigger guard with extended tang, stock plate and rammer flute. Its wood ram rod has a brass end cap and steel worm. It has a Swan neck hammer. The lock plate is signed by the manufacturer ‘H. Nock’. The cocking and firing actions work crisply. The price for this flintlock pistol by a prestigious manufacturer includes UK delivery. NB As an antique flintlock pistol no licence is required to own this item in the UK if retained as part of a collection or display **This item is from the life time military collection that belonged to Captain Allan Marshall. Marshall was a Captain with the Royal Regiment of Fusiliers and on retirement went onto be a respected local huntsman, historian and nature expert, writing for the Rochdale Observer for over 40 years. With his love of history he amassed a collection of historical, military arms and armour related items and was known for his noted collection of Lancashire Fusillers Insignia. On his death in 2012 his collection was passed to his son Mr Jeremy Marshall who also took over the family business ‘Towers of Rochdale’ which was established in the early 1900s and sold guns and country pursuit items. Jeremy was a prominent figure in the firearms industry and adviser to some government and business agencies but sadly passed away in November 2020. He had continued adding to his late father’s military collection with some quite unique items** Sn 18644
