Description

Ottoman Flintlock Pistol

An antique Ottoman flintlock pistol, first half of the 18th century. Of primitive craftsmanship, in the French taste. The lock of crudely forged iron, handwork to the brass furniture, decoratively cast. Also, features a full stock with decorative Brass Scroll Wire inlay decoration.

The fullstock is of classic Ottoman Turkish form, having a pronounced bulbous butt (Brass reinforced Knob Pommel) and long slender forestock, made without a ramrod provision, as is typical of Turkish Firearms. The heavy weight Brass pommel on the grip, must have doubled as a potential club. Chiseled barrel and with a, once fine quality, European lock mechanism.

From the Souks of Constantinople, this is a rider gun and because of the size, they were carried in the saddle holster. Big Bore Flintlock in functional Condition.

The pistol was hand-made and built rugged. It is a decorative work of art as well as functional cavalry weapon.
The overall condition is very good. The metal surfaces are dark with age and rust. The bore is dark and unrifled and has erosion. The action is a little stiff but functions flawlessly and accurately. Here is a weapon that was made with both beauty and warfare in mind. The stock is smooth wood, stained dark brown and inlaid with copper scroll design. The grip has a stirrup style ornate cast (bronze?) cap similar to those used by vintage Turkish pistol makers. The forend runs full length to the muzzle. The trigger guard is also cast bronze and secured with nails.

No missing copper wires and no noticeable repairs. There is a flash hole next to the pan indicative of an original pistol (Replica’s usually don’t have this hole).
