    ~ A circa 1760/70 Eastern Europeean (though possibly Spanish) Snaphaunce Flinter Pistol ~


    The pistol has a walnut stock and two-stage barrel engraved with gold inlay on the octagonal breech-section. It has a beautiful pommel with rams head and foliate detailing. The side plate is richly embossed.

    There is silver wirework to the butt and also on the underside of the barrel.

    It does have a strong spring but the trigger pin is worn too short to release the cocked weapon.

    ~ Dimensions ~

    The overall length is 18 inches (46cm) with the barrel measuring 11.5 inches (29cm).

    The total weight is 1 kg.

    ~ Condition ~

    The pistol is in decent order for its age. The woodwork has a shallow area of loss near the muzzle. The side plate has loss of definition through polishing. The upper prongs of the pommel are absent. The trigger is rather loose.

    ~ Postage ~

    UK postage is £18 or the pistol can be collected from our shop in Portsmouth Historic Dockyard....Read full description
