    On Auction : Under Napoleon III, wealthy officers paid for more luxurious weapons with their own funds than regulatory supplies. This is the case of this pistol, with a calibre of 15 mm in order to accept certain ammunition from the army. The weapon is in a condition we rarely see: externally, it is new. The varnish on the butt is intact, the engravings are very deep and without wear, the damascus on the barrel is completely intact. The weapon has a lovely renaissance butt and a ‘front’ lock, typical of the first half of Napoleon III’s reign. It works perfectly mechanically but the lock’s large spring has been changed, probably as a result of a break. The one that is in place works perfectly but is far too soft for good use in firing. It will need to be tightened if you want to fire this weapon. Rare weapon in this appearance: it feels like it’s just coming from the gunsmith. Beautiful testimony of a time when panache was important....Read full description
