    About this item

    Uniquely Italian style with a nearly straight stock, this compact belt pistol features flat
    lockplate with external wheel and sliding pan cover; the cock chiseled to appear like it is
    protruding from the mouth of a sea monster.  Tapering 6 1/8" octagonal-to-round barrel of
    9mm caliber with cannon muzzle, deeply stamped on the breech with a tombstone-shaped
    mark featuring a man holding a staff weapon.  Walnut full stock with nearly straight grip
    expanding toward the steel-banded octagonal butt.  Stock inlaid with silver tacks and wire
    in scroll pattern on reverse side and butt end.  Wood ramrod with turned steel button tip.
    Steel mounts including pierced trigger guard with serpentine tang, belt hook with matching
    pierced decoration, fore-end cap and barrel band.  Metal cleaned with some pitting,
    primarily on the lockplate and around the touch hole.  Overall length 11 3/4".  Similar
