Caucasian (Dagestan) FLINTLOCK pistol lock with Arabic inscription.
The only mark is on the lock.
It would be great if a member could translate it.

It's likely not from Daghestan; the lock at least is Circassian,
or in the Circassian style. I suspect it was assembled from
diverse parts in Georgia.

Very nice!

this pistol should have the same origin than this gun.

Hi Cerjak.

That is a very nice pistol. I agree with Oliver, the lock is Circassian style.

The locks on the blunderbuss knee pistol and the long gun from the Link are both in the Caucasian style. Believed by some, including myself, to be from Persian origin.

Again, very nice guns all. Here is another pic of a Circassian style lock:
