This pistol is based off of Wm. Antes work and reflects the bold, recognizable decoration that Antes was known for. The pistol was built from a blank of highly figured Curly Maple and has a custom made barrel and modified Small Siler lock. All mounts are Hand-Made and the trigger, trigger plate, lock bolts and tank screw are all Hand-Forged. The carving and engraving was done using all hand tools just the way it was done in the 18th Century.
