France - de défense - à balle forcée - Percussion - Pistol - 12mm cal

nice defence pistol, with chest and forced bullet, with foldable trigger, model with unscrewing barrel (no round key hooks or square hooks on the mouth of the barrel), made in the early reign of Charles X in the very beginning of the July Monarchy.

- functions perfectly mechanically with a very clear percussion, the half-loaded and loaded positions hold well.
- perfectly adjusted foldable trigger
- finely chiselled chest
- black wooden butt with a small gluing (see photos), but still solid and in good condition.
- small lack on the opening of the hammer (hammer bumped - see photos)
- original chimney

pistol is in its patina, with the small marks and grooves caused by use in its almost 200 years, but it has remained in nice and good condition in terms of appearance and functioning.
