PRUSSIAN Antique PERCUSSION Target Pistol by HENCKELS .44 Caliber German LA
Very Fancy with Engraved German Silver, Twist Barrel, Carved Stock
Here we present an antique L.A. Henckels Percussion Target Pistol, manufactured circa the mid-19th century in Berlin, Germany. Henckels was a German gunmaker in the 1850s. This stately pistol features a swamped, twist, octagonal barrel, engraving throughout, German silver pommel cap, trigger guard, and escutcheons, and a nicely figured and checkered wooden stock. Single set trigger. The top of the barrel is marked by the maker: “L.A. HENCKELS IN BERLIN”.
The overall condition is very good. The action is excellent and the bore is deeply rifled. The stock is in great shape. There is a series of short splits on the left side at the top edge where the lock screw head is located that are stable and are typical of this design. A very handsome single shot percussion pistol!
