DescriptionRound barrel, 189 mm long, no rifling. Cal. 17,2 mm. The barrel reworked, acceptance marks and year of make barely visible. Model name on the tang. Marked "St.Etienne" in italics under the cock, next to year of make "86". The walnut stock slightly shrunk, reworked, with traces of age and wear. Belt hook, probably added on later. Original iron ramrod. Mechanically sound. Length circa 34,5 cm. The year of make raises doubts, as the version with belt hook was discontinued in 1784. We recommend to inspect the pistol.
