Turkish decorative antique pistol

Decorative Turkish pistol. Not a reproduction. The barrel is not drilled for a touch hole and it is not substantial at the breech so it was never made to fire. The lock is flimsy and not made to work but will go to full and half cock.There are really nice silver wire work inlays and mother of pearl translucent inlays. There are profuse silver inlays in the barrel and lock. It is really elaborate and good quality. Cast brass mounts. Two pictures does not do it justice, more available. The barrel is 8.5 long with about an half inch bore. The reason I am posting this is because of the extensive wire work in the stock and silver inlays in the barrel and furniture.

Original H. Nock Fowler restored by Bruce LePage

This is a wonderful gun by a great maker that has been restored to it's original condition by Bruce LePage. He converted it back to flint, polished the lock inside and out and re-engraved it. The touch hole has been lined with what looks like platinum which would be appropriate but it might be stainless. The 32" long barrel has been honed smooth to a mirror finish inside and the outside has been refinished to bring out the damascus pattern. The wood has been cleaned and refinished without any sanding so it still shows the minor handling dents natural to it's age. The checkering does not appear to have been re-cut. The wood is very sound with only one small check on the right forend behind the nosecap. The nosecap is formed iron and held in place with a screw. The ramrod is original with both tips intact. The lower tip has a threaded cap that covers a wad puller and the front tip is damascus to match the rest of the barrel. Overall an exceptionally nice gun for any collection or to take to the range. Very light and well balanced. The pictures will tell you more. Weight is 5 lbs. 15 oz. Pull is 14". More pictures can be found at
