Pistol circa 1830, signature of Duc in Paris in shooting condition.
We find the exactly the same signature on the site of the memorial Boutet, on the guard of a sword of an officer of the Royal Guard:
Duc à Paris : DUC, rue St Honoré n°251 à Paris, arquebusier et fourbisseur de la Garde Impériale et de la Garde Royale.
The weapon is discreetly signed under the barrel which is perfectly consistent with the design of the weapon: it is military, simple and functional, very neat and sturdy, intended for the service. To report, some traces of old aesthetic restorations, discreet and well made, to restore some chips in the wood of the butt, at crossings of pins, and the left front; This is probably the work of a military gunsmith in arsenal of the 19th century.
The weapon is in a condition that allows calmly to consider its use in an intensive way to the shooting range for those who would like to use it: the mechanism of the lock is good and the condition of the barrel, internal and external is without wear or corrosion. To shoot, you need a round ball of 13mm or 14mm with gras wadding. (A copy of time provided with weapon).
Simple, robust, reliable, decorative, with a prestigious origin.
