    Belle paire de pistolets.
    Interrogations sur la boite: moule à balles de 11mm pour un calibre de 13mm, position des pistolets non interchangeable, boite à graisse et tournevis plutôt modernes.
    Bof!

    Hello Didier
    Glad you loved the guns.It was a good investment.This English signed guns have a retail price in UK about 2500 to 3500 £.
    Concerning the case it seems your appreciation was unfair.Look to the original description, please;

    "In a Oak wood case, with key with possession scutcheon not used (This is not is original case). Interior lined with " bordeaux velvet", compartmentalized containing; Apocryphal brass Powder flask and Bullet mold" .Apocryphal Oil bottle, screwdriver,nipple box.
    So was clear that Brass powder, bullet mold,oil bottle, screwdriver, nipple box were not original items but apocryphal.We did not know the age but seems vintage.
    So please keep in mind that everything about cased weapons was described in the lot description.I`m sorry if you did not noticed that.
    Last thing; It seems that the bullet mold was not the right caliber.Please consider return it and I will change with one more adapted ( 12,5mm) at my cost.
    So please reconsider your evaluation

    Hi
    I´m pleased that you liked the gun.As I have mentioned in the description " The mechanism is not working properly, only arm in one position with finger help, Due to that the fire action is not strong; keep that in mind when bidding"
    I never tried to open it.
