Beautiful Turkish style stock decorated with deep floral style carvings. Steel counter plat The trigger guard, butt are Sterling silver mounts decorated with floral engravings. The pistol is of considerably higher quality than usually encountered. CONDITION: Fine+. The stock is solid and in overall fine condition with couple of minor handling marks and light scratches. No cracks to the wood. All the steel furniture is in excellent condition. The barrel has a layer of patina with occasional micro-pitting. The ramrod is fixed and cased in sterling silver. The engravings on the barrel are worn. The lock is in working order But I removed the striker to look at it and the spring is so stiff I didn't have a tool I felt would recompress it without possible scratching. All original and complete. Very attractive late 18th century Turkish cavalry pistol!
