QUALITY, C1800 English Nock London Brass Frame, Over & Under, Double Barrel, Tap Action, 54 Bore, Flintlock Traveling Pistol With Screw Off Steel Barrels. Sn 16823 - 16823

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 gun maker to the King. Nock's business eventually became Wilkinson Sword. This is a quality made over & under, tap action flintlock traveling pistol by Nock. It's round steel screw off barrels are 2 ½” in length (8” overall). The smooth bores have staining and residue consistent with age and use. The barrels and action have black powder proofs. Its heavy brass frame is nicely engraved on both sides with banners and arms. On the left side the motif bears the maker’s name 'Nock' and the right ‘London’. The trigger guard is engraved with a foliate design. It has a steel slide safety bolt, steel pan and hammer which is fitted with a flint. The pistol's bag shaped walnut grip is undamaged and the back chequered for grip. It is also inlaid with void diamond shaped escutcheon. The left side of the grip has old carved initials ‘JD’ most likely the original owner of the pistol. The pistol cocks and dry fires perfectly and the tap action operated by a rounded lever on the left side of the pan functions perfectly. The price for this desirable pistol by a quality maker 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. Sn 16823Read more
