impressive set of dueling pistols and fine walnut case - .44 Cal.
This is a very accurate old reproduction set of dueling pistols that are
totally functional! Barrel lengths are 10 1/2 inches. The style is
French - Henry Lapage - and quite ornate with many features you can
no longer find in old reproductions. Each pistol retains perfectly
carved and figured European walnut half stocks and both match beautifully.
Silver inlay work on all metal parts including hammers. Locks are
inscribed with the date 1871. All accessory items are totally functional
as well and are beautifully done. Both pistols are in perfect mint
condition and have never been fired! Proof marks galore on left side
of barrels and both pistols are serial numbered. Powder flask is
silver plated with brass fittings. Blue velvet lined case is inlayed with
brass wire with brass inscription plate top center and locks with silver
plated skeleton key. Octagon barrels are fully fluted and silver
inlayed with front and rear sights attached. Mechanically very tight
with triggers tuned in at a perfect 2 lbs of pull each (We checked it).
We did not check the barrel twist but its is probably 1 in 17. Comes
with 44 caliber balls in compartment - percussion caps in wooden
jar compartment - and a flask full of powder! This is no doubt a
rare and impressive dueling set! One of the best we have ever seen!
