Boutet 1er Empire commemorative Pistol
The guns signed by Nicolas-Noël Boutet were famous in the whole of Europe for their technical perfection and the matchless artistic sense the gunsmith imprinted on every gun he built.
Even Napoleon often wrote with flattering appreciation about the style and prestige of the Boutet guns which Pedersoli now proudly introduces with this elegant flintlock model, with brown barrel and the stock high on the muzzle. The sturdy grip with fine checkering on the sides gives a robust grip sensation and is completed with a metal butt plate.
The ramrod has a horn tip at one end. The pistol is equipped with a single set trigger. On the lock two lines are engraved with Manuf RE / a Versaillles. The fitting of silver nails in the drawing created by the checkering on the grip enabled to have this splendid version of the Boutet pistol.
The metal butt plate reproducing a “Medusa head” of the typical Boutet school and the golden scroll on the barrel complete the gun in harmony.
