Hi all! I'd appreciate any help you can with identifying this flintlock (dueling?) pistol.

It has been in the family for at least 50 years no other family information available.

It has some sort of metal exterior which has not been polished as far as I know, so that makes it what?....nickel alloy?

My grandmother's husband has several other caplock dueling pistols and muff guns dating from the 1870's I'd guess, but this flintlock would date to much earlier if original right?

Please help with any information anyone can provide.

I appreciate it!

Your metal-stocked flintlock pistol might be either Scottish, Austrian or other European/Napoleonic Era maker - If the stock and/or lock is removed, there might be a proof mark or maker's mark stamped or etched into the barrel bottom ot inside the lockplate.
