A travel pistol from the second half of the 19th century

Muzzle-loading travel pistol. The gun has a smooth bore with an octagonal barrel in the chamber and a cylindrical mouth, with a reinforcement ring. The piston stock and the pile cap are made of walnut with a mounted stem until the muzzle in the English style.

These kinds of travel pistols were produced illegally and therefore do not usually bear brands. They were small so they could be carried in secret.
