Available for sale is this unique custom made flintlock pistol by noted author and gunsmith, Peter Alexander. The rifled .45 caliber brass barrel is 10 inches long, full octagon and fit with handmade front and rear sights. The lock is stamped “Ashmore – Warranted” and has just been hand tuned to ensure proper and reliable function. The trigger and trigger plate have been hand made in the traditional 18th Century style. All of the mounts are made of brass with the trigger guard, backstrap and side plate being all hand engraved. The pistol is stocked in a wonderful piece of curly maple and retains an excellent finish. It is hand carved with a fluted and beaded forestock molding that terminates with an incised ornament behind the tail pipe. There is also a nicely styled relief carved ornament executed behind and around the barrel tang. This is a really nice pistol with great balance and a lot of eye appeal.
