Beautiful officer’s pistol, typical of the weapons of the 1st empire (right angle butt, diamond pattern on the butt, barrel with flaps, slightly tromblon). This is typically the kind of weapon that officers used to carry at their belts as a backup weapon in combat. The weapon was transformed into a percussion rifle in the 19th century, probably by an officer eager to keep the weapon with which he took part in the campaigns of the first empire. The weapon is beautiful, but one can see that it has served a lot, there are traces of brutal military use on the wood of the butt that has been repaired/restored. The steels are clean, without significant corrosion. The lock works well. It is a beautiful item that has witnessed the campaigns of the first and second empire. To be showcased.
Beautiful item evoking the campaigns of the first and second empire, at a time when a weapon had to be efficient, sturdy and elegant to better indicate one’s social status.
