An excellent and very near mint flintlock manstopper pistol of massive proportions by Collins of London. This heavy weight pistol of 11 inches has a six inch Damascus twist barrel of a massive .77 bore, larger than the usual musket bore pistols. The barrel top signed London. Full walnut stock with chequered grip, bone forend and stirrup ramrod. Engraved steel mounts. The lock signed Collins, with roller frizzen and slide safety. A very fine piece, circa 1820.
