An unbeatable selection of antique cased pistol sets now available at Henry Krank.

The casing of guns is a hallmark of luxury and quality that continues into the modern day. From antique flintlock pistols of the early 18th century, to modern match pistols, casing is the final mark of prestige that a maker or retailer can give a firearm, and cased sets of antique pistols are as desirable nowadays as when they were new.

A finely cased pair of pistols, complete with accessories, was the ultimate way for a manufacturer to display their wares, and a luxurious and desirable way for them to be kept by the owner. Cased pairs of pistols are often erroneously referred to as ‘duelling pistols’, and indeed some were, however many kinds of luxury pistol was cased, from practical boxlock pistols to exquisite travelling or target pistols. The casing of pistols is in itself as much of an art as the guns themselves. Precisely fitted accessories, cushioned in baize, provide the shooter everything needed to load, clean and maintain the guns, and the complete cased set is as practical as it is attractive. A cased pair of pistols make a fantastic investment or family heirloom and remain our best selling and most desirable antiques.
