Bartholomaus Joseph Kuchenreuter lived between 1782-1864 in Steinweg, near Regensburg, in Germany. He was the son of Joseph II very well known as a highly acknowledged and skilled gunmaker and, in addition, as a very good successful black powder shooter.
This explains the excellent shooting characteristics of this pistol, such as the size and shape of the grip. This splendid reproduction target pistol, whose original model was produced around 1854/1855, is certainly the “Masterpiece” of our production. Provided with single set trigger and vertically adjustable rear sight, it is the ideal pistol for the marksman. The barrel is rust brown finish colour with the writing: BARTH. IOS KUCHENREUTER and the silver inlay Kuchenreuter mark . The grained walnut stock is oil finished and all metal parts are colour case hardened.
The Deluxe version is enriched with gold plating on the background of the engraving, exalting its beauty and rarity.
