Blake Flintlock pistol inlaid engraved bayonet  Guns > Pistols > Antique (Pre-1899) Pistols - Perc. Misc.
Description: Exquisite Blake Flintlock pistol of museum quality, with extensive silver inlay, engraving, and folding bayonet. Pistol was aquired by my father in the late 1950's in Europe, and it has been in environmentally controlled vault storage virtually since then. Total length is 15 inches, barrel is 9 inches. Appears to be in complete and unusually good original condition, with only some kind of marking - perhaps from a holster of sorts beneath near the trigger guard, a slight lifting of the silver inlay at the lower portion of the grip on both sides, and the rod holder near the trigger guard. From visible marks near the flint, it looks to have been fired in it's lifetime though it would have been an owner before our time, and provenance is otherwise unknown. My thing is restoring pistols from the early 1900's, so I won't be working on this since I'm not keeping it and need to pass it on to a collector. I do know this must be an easy / inexpensive fix for a restoration, since I know I could do it with superglue and a dental pick for the silver, and jb weld for the brass. No heat of any kind. However since it's way outside my realm and I know better than to mess with it, I'm leaving it for the new owner or the pros.

Obviously a rare pistol, I could find only one comparable sale. At a Christies in November 2004, a pair of similar Blake pistols about half this size sold for over $9200. A google search for "Blake Flintlock" and "Christies" will find it immediately. Although I know nothing more than what I've written, I will answer all questions to the best of my ability and provide additional hi rez photos by request. I have longstanding positive history under my screen name on other sites. After payment has cleared, Pistol will be shipped overnight and fully insured for an additional $175 - an adult must be present to sign. There is no return for this pistol once shipped.
