What a gorgeous pistol. This is a very high quality large bore target pistol that was manufactured in France. The gun has the St. Etienne France maker's name of the Bregnier Company engraved into the lock plate. The action on the gun still works superbly on all positions. The lock plate and hammer as well as all of the other pieces of metal on the gun have the ornate floral and geometric engraving and chisel work. The barrel measures 9-1/2 inches in length and fires a single bullet of approximately .50 caliber. As you can see the barrels are the high quality version that are constructed with the Damascus style pattern and the Damascus shows up beautifully well. On the breech of the barrel it has the solid gold inlaid "1" denoting that it would have been a pair originally. The original front and rear sights are present. The gun has the spur style trigger guard with the beautiful engraving in fine detail work. On the bottom of the grip it has the original engraved iron grip cap with the original factory case colors still visible. The stock of the gun is constructed of a single piece of beautiful medium color would. The wood is a gorgeous piece of high quality wood that is nice enough for any piece of fine furniture. The grip base has the extra design work to make it stand out. This is a beautifully constructed target pistol from the 1850s that will fit nicely into any collection public or private.
