This is a 1/2 scale antique all metal ball butt wheellock pistol by an unknown maker circa about 1530 – 1625. 4 1/4″ long overall with a 2 3/4″ part octagon part round barrel of .186 caliber. The stock of the pistol and the wheel retainer are made from yellow brass. The balance of the parts are steel finished in the white. The left side of the stock, the wheel retainer, the ball butt, the right side of the hammer & top jaw, the top of the pan cover, and the right side of the pan are very nicely engraved. The hammer spring, safety spring, the triggerguard are finely sculpted. The barrel has a cannon muzzle with turned rings at the breech and the transition between octagon & round. The pan cover easily slides forward to prime. To close, the small round brass button just ahead of the wheel must be depressed, then the pan closed. Includes the original “T” shaped combination tool which is the wheel winder key, the top jaw wrench, and a screwdriver. also includes an arched top black leather hinged top casing with push button latch that is probably much later. The interior bottom shallowly French fit, and is lined in a dark red felt. The interior top is lined in a burgundy silk. The interior lid has a gold logo which looks to be a crown, with the letters “Y R” underneath, then “BY APPOINTMENT” and then some missing letter and ” LKINGTON & Co.”. Excellent condition considering it’s age. There is some minor pitting on the lockplate, other than that, just some patina to the brass in places. Stock # JK-1. Price Reduced: $4,950.00.
