Albanian, of characteristic form. See The Arms of Greece and Her Balkan Neighbors in the Ottoman Period, Elgood p.102. 9" length, .60 cal. barrel with gray/brown patina and quite smooth. Well-detailed miquelet lock with fancy sculpted bridle to the pan and figured cock pivot. The stock is entirely encased in engraved and embossed brass, with few small blemishes only. The wrist with two rows of six white metal “grape clusters”. Iron trigger guard with decorative brass overlay. Elegant stepped swelled butt of, particularly elongated form. Slight distortion of the brass sheathing from shrinkage of the wood core within as expected. A good example of this type is significantly variant from other Ottoman pistols.
