#2166 French Pocket Flint “Gendarmerie pistol”.


#2166 French Pocket Flint pistol, sometimes referred to as a “Gendarmerie pistol”. About 45 caliber 3-1/2” barrel with cannon style muzzle and sidelock action, no markings that are visable. The metal is very decent, it works well and is complete, but it does have some significant chipping at the tip of the forestock that could be repaired to increase the value. It’s getting difficult to find ANY sidelock pocket flint at much under $500, and with some decent work on the snout, this little gun would easily retail in the $750 range. About Good+ $445

Price: $445.00
