This little flintlock pistol shows a tough combination of features. Pocket sized with a cannon barrel, it's trigger flips down as you pull back the hammer as with most box-locks. Early cannon barrel, fully engraved and the most unusual part is the solid steel grip. These are almost always found with wood grips with wire inlay. This example had a problem with the action and I spent $150.00 to get it fixed but it still has a problem holding on full-cock and I don't have time to send it back and forth so I'm moving it down the road. A really cool and interesting little gun, I doubt we'll see another for a long time.
