British Saw Handle Percussion Pistols


This handsome pair of English .54 caliber percussion belt pistols features elegant saw-handle grips that greatly improve shooting accuracy and stability. The octagonal, smooth bore barrel is crafted of strong Damascus steel, terminating in Fine nickel silver grips decorated with marvellously sharp and crisp engraving. Gun enthusiasts traditionally prefer an all-metal design for heavy caliber weapons since the warping and splitting that typically occurs with the recoil is not an issue with metal grips. The pistols are nestled within their original, custom-fitted case, which also contains a bullet mold, powder flask, cleaning rod and a compartment for ball storage. The pisols bear the cross sceptre proof on the barrel and grip. circa 1850 Pistols: 8 3/8" length (from grip to barrel) Case: 11 5/8" wide x 7 1/4" deep x 2 1/2" high.
