Pair of Belgian Flintlock Turn Off Barrel (AH5820)

Pair of Belgian Flintlock Turn Off Barrel pistols. Pair of Belgian Flintlock turn off barrel pistols with “hideout” belt/holster rig. The pistols have folding triggers. They have sliding hammer safeties. The frames are very tastefully engraved on both sides. The stocks are beautifully carved and fluted on the backstrap. The checkering is excellent with no damage. The barrels are 2 ½”ths inches overall length is six inches. The holsters are leather and can slide left and right on the red leather belt which measures 38 inches. The belt is linen backed. It is very rare to find one of these rare hideout rigs. They are also referred to as Gamblers hideout rigs. Considering the fragile nature of the belt and holsters this in our opinion is a rare find. You can find more info in Flaydermans Guide to American Antique guns, 9th edition, page 432 which shows examples of hideout rigs including a photo of Norm Flayderman dressed as a Gambler and wearinga pair of pistols in a holster rig much like this one. These pistols are in excellent condition and are high quality!
