Beautiful. Do you have any idea of the age? They were mentioned quite early in the colonies.

Talk about a low bore axis. If this took Glock mags it'd be wildly popular these days. 😄

Nice piece, hope it shoots well for you! Best wishes for your recovery, so you can get out and shoot it!

I'll be interested in your thoughts once you've had some range time with it. When I had the opportunity to handle/shoot a number of sawhandled pistols, it seemed harder to shoot one well if it didn't fit my hand. My hand seemed to adapt better to various sizes/shapes of a traditional-gripped pistol. I was never sure how much of this was due to the actual grip shape/size, and how much was due to limited experience. (The closest I found to a sawhandle that I could shoot well was from Ten Ring Precision, and those were hardly a "traditional" flintlock.)
