This is a 1/3 scale underhammer percussion single shot pistol by an unknown maker.  3 5/16" long overall with a 1 11/16" part round part octagon blued steel barrel of .134 caliber.  The barrel with a nice ring transition between the round and octagon parts, and a swelled cannon muzzle.  The underside of the barrel is marked "JK".  Blued steel hammer and trigger.  Yellow brass topstrap and gripstrap.  Yellow brass blade type front sight, and yellow brass rear "peep" sight.  There is an engraved stylized eagle on the top strap.  One piece light colored what I think is a walnut grip, but may be stained hardwood.  Cased in a walnut hinged top casing, the latch parts missing, and a small crack on the lower back.  The case interior French fit and lined in a gold felt.  Also included is a brass cleaning rod with a serrated handle.  There is a square recess in the case, which I think was for a cap container, which is now missing.  Fully functional.  The bore is drilled through to the nipple, and the hammer has a good crisp action.  The steel parts show about 65% original blue, the rest blending to a pleasing gray patina.  The brass has a nice uncleaned aged patina.

Unknown-double-flint-pistol-KW850-1.JPG

 

This is a 1/3 scale over/under tap action center hammer flintlock pistol by an unknown maker.  3" long overall with with two screw off smoothbore Damascus barrels 15/16" long of about .160 caliber.  The muzzle ends of the barrels are cut with what looks like eight rifling groves, but are actually where the barrel wrench would engage the barrels to unscrew then if they became stuck.  The hammer has both half and full cock.  All steel parts except the barrels are finished in the white.  The barrels are blued.  One piece walnut pistol grip.  There is a lever on the left side that rotates a drum which when rotated one way blocks the flask to the barrels, and the other way has a hole directing the flash to both barrels, so this shoots both barrels with one pull of the trigger.  Well made with good fit & finish.  The barrels show about 40% original blue damascened finish, the balance turning plum brown.  The balance of the metal is still bright, but does show some very minor scratches from handling.
