James Michie Scottish Metal Flintlock, 1700's .Scottish gunmakers that produced the elegant all-metal flintlock pistol design, was wise enough to include embellishment in the form of extensive fine engraving. This .56 caliber single-shot, made in the mid-18th Century, has a number of subtle features, including a delicate loading rod and a flared muzzle contour. Even the utilitarian belt hook is nicely engraved!
