Henry Nock, London. Beautiful and rare pair of 16-bore, saw-handled grip, late eighteenth century, dueling pistols by one of the greatest gun maker’s who ever lived. A bit over 14" in overall length. 8”-long damascus barrels with mint bores retain most of an old rebrown finish. Expertly converted from flintlock to percussion, ca. 1820 and show no evidence of use since that time. Locks and breeches retain much original color hardening and the mounts retain traces of the original black. Highly figured original saw-handled grip stocks with crisp checkering are absolutely beautiful. Original ramrods. Cased in a proper period case, possibly the original, with the original lining and a compliment of original accessories. Saw-handled grip dueling pistols in this condition from this early period are quite rare and here is an opportunity to own a classic pair at a very reasonable price.
