NICE GERMAN KETTNER BOLT ACTION PARLOR / TARGET PISTOL:
In very nice original condition. Circa 1890. 18 1/2 inch overall length. Some kind of a 22 caliber (with a bottleneck case - see chamber photo). Fine metal retaining a good amount of its original blue finish on barrel, trigger guard and buttplate. Faint "Eduard Kettner Koln" silver inlaid markings on barrel. Receiver originally finished in the white and displaying a superb engraved decor. Fine carved and checkered stock with a couple of very minor handling marks. No cracks... 9 7/8 inch barrel. Excellent action and fine to excellent bore with strong rifling. An unusual and very attractive pistol!
