Sold for £150
Flintlock- the action will hold at half and full cock and release with the trigger. The trigger does have quite a bit of play in it even if the action is not primed to fire, though. The lock plate is 13.4cm long.
Both actions on the percussions function correctly but one is a bit stiff when it comes to releasing the trigger
