Superb defence pistol, unscrewing barrel, flintlock mechanism with forced ball, 11 mm calibre, made in Britain in the late 18th century or very early 19th century by Taylor, an arquebusier from London.
- it works perfectly mechanically, the hammer with two notches are perfectly synchronised, very dry percussion with still hard trigger release (typical and carefully made Taylor mechanism found on the largest flintlock models for officers)
- tight battery, no play, with precise locking
- unscrewing barrel (with central key) - unscrews perfectly by hand
- signature is perfectly legible on either side of the chest
- lovely light walnut grip with silver thread (small lack on the left side, see photos) but still in very good and beautiful condition.
- polished steel in its grey patina with its small marks and scratches from wear and ageing, still in good and beautiful condition.
- attachment point on the upper grip is definitely posterior - no play on the butt
Very nice flintlock pistol, carefully made, period Georges III, in perfect working condition.
