Hi, I have a flintlock pistol that I would like to hear more opinions on. I know it has a few screws that are not original from whenever
the gun was made. The silver wire inlay IS silver (acid tested piece that had come out). Parts move, half cocks, fully cocks, pull the trigger and it strikes the frizzen.
I don't know if Replicas or reproductions are capable of "firing" but from what I have heard the foreign tourist built pistols are . So i guess that the fact that mine acts like a gun doesnt mean much as far as it being something special. I have also been told they put the locks on other black powder pistols sometimes to piece together and make a flintlock.
I guess my best bet is to post pictures..... hopefully they are good enough shots/quality for someone to see something that helps identify what I have.
Thanks for looking!
