This pistol has a 10 - 1/2" two-stage .65 caliber smoothbore barrel with a continuous top flat, a front sight of brass, and a rear notched sight mounted at the front of the barrel tang. The early banana lock has a rounded face and an unbridled frizzen. There is a single raised edge along the border. Indistinct maker's mark beneath the front of the frizzen spring. Brass furniture including an "S" shaped sideplate, brass buttcap, and military-style faceted trigger guard terminating in a Fleur-de-Lis finial. The walnut stock features a relief foliate design around the barrel tang and relief panels around the lock cavity, sideplate, ramrod channel, and trigger guard. The stock terminates in a horn nosecap. The horn ramrod has a bone tip. CONDITION: Barrel and lock have been cleaned in the European fashion and retain a bright surface. There are some minor defects on the right side towards the muzzle. Lock is in its original flintlock configuration and functions properly, post is partially broken off. Stock shows some cracks and scattered marks from use. Brass retains a mellow mustard patina. A nice early-to-mid-18th century German pistol, of the type that would have been carried by German mercenaries fighting in America during the Revolution. DMG
