English Saw Handle Percussion Pistol by Manton (AH6502)
Very fine English pistol by Manton of London. Frame is all metal. Damascus barrel is 5.25" and has a beautiful pattern. Overall length is 9.5". Bore is .50 caliber and is counter bored at the muzzle for easy loading of a .50 caliber ball. The frame is German silver with a light gold hue that really works very well with the Damascus barrel! The frame is elegantly engraved in a motif of broad leaf florals with fine shading to bring out the mix of the light gold frame and the shaded parts of the florals. This elegant pistol has a belt hook on the left side. The Manton workmanship is evident in every aspect of the pistol. Makes you smile to just hold it in your hand!
