North African Flintlock Pistol with large powder horn.

The pistol is North African, with parts that appear to be of fine European quality. The barrel is over 12 inches long, quite heavy, and swamped. It has old decoration on it of very fine quality. The lock also appears to be older, and is musket sized. The stock is covered with tiny silver nails, and has some brass decoration as well. The rest of the mounts are brass, and of lesser quality, although they appear to be fairly old. The lock is functional, and definitely has a musket spring.

The powder horn is large and handsome, with ornate brass mounts. It retains its cap.

Processing and shipping within the continental U.S. $ 48.00 plus 1.5% replacement and insurance. Please note we do not accept credit cards.
