I’ve been in Dagestan (next door to Chechnya) a few days now perusing the local antique markets looking for some miquelets, kindjal, and shashka. I finally found the honey hole of the town. The pistol itself is a restored piece, only original pieces are the barrel and lock. The lock in the white is a new made piece as well. They are still made in the same village, Kubachi, as they were 200 years ago.
