This pistol represents a perfect reproduction of a late Manton pistol, and the most advanced development of the flintlock system.
This pistol was manufactured in Germany circa 1989, and features two Krupp Stahl (Krupp Steel) barrels.
The Krupp works were undoubtedly the best steel, heavy armaments and gun barrel manufacturers from the middle of the 19th century, to late 20th century, and supplied barrels for civilian and military purposes made of their advanced crucible steel throughout their production run. Hege is likewise known as the finest producer of reproduction single shot pistols, and the quality and attention to detail to which these pistols are built is unparalelled by anything available since.
This gun is of astounding quality, and is complete with .44 rifled and smoothbore barrels, spare frizzen, and original sales literature and letter from the manufacturer, complete in foam lined plastic carrying case. They are in remarkable condition and appear to be unfired.
Note: This pistol is for sale as a complete set, so a variation for a .44 pistol and spare .44 barrel will be required, the gun will not be sold independent of the spare barrel.
