Hi Fernando.
OK, yes, you can see where the barrel had a percussion bolster at some point in it's life, then removed. The captive ramrod was probably add when the barrel was converted to percussion. ...

Hi Philip.
Much agree. Even with the wear, it is still well marked and has a wonderful profile. Maybe Fernando can take a couple more pics of the lock as long as it's disassembled ? Would like to...

Hi Fernando.

Frames 6 and 7 do indeed look like there were belt hooks attached at some point.
I don't recall seeing any belt hooks on full-size shoulder muskets. And there would be no need for one...

Hi Cerjak

Yet again, two more great looking pistols !!!

I agree. Either European made for export, or assembled/decorated locally with the use of European parts. The locks and barrels look...

Hi Cerjak

Hmmmm Sorry. I have no idea on that lock signature. Either the lock maker, the assembler of the pistol, or even the customer/owner.
Occassionally you will find English or other...

Hi Corrado

Yes, it is interesting that many of these Eastern pistols immitated styling cues from French pistols of the first half of the 18th Century. And that styling seemed to remain popular for...

Hi Cerjak

WOW!!! Another really nice pistol. I agree with Kubur. To me, this pistol has Ottoman all over it. The lock style/work on this one is really attractive. The gun appears all complete...

Hi Cerjak

I agree with Kubur. That is a nice Greek pistol. And in a style you don't normally encounter. It's a bit hard to tell from the patina on the lock plate, but it appears to have...

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....

Hi Jon.

That is a very nice pistol. At first glance, one might conclude this is a Caucasian made pistol. Caucasian made guns seem to heavily favor the use of Persian styled miquelet locks, such as...

Hi Cerjak.

Nice looking Teppo. Yes, too bad about the broken serpentine.
As Estcrh mentions, if there are any marks it is usually on the botton of the barrel/plug. And in my case, there was an...

Hi Kubur.

I too found this lock for almost nothing. The description was wrong. That's just the typical brass overlay on it.
Again, nice Boyliya. Looks very complete.

A good pic of the interior of the lock and the breech plug of the barrel could give us additional clues. Looking forward to your pics. Thanks.
