Italian Snaphaunce - Circa 1560
15½ inches this isn't a huge gun, but it is still
a chunky handful. Based on a snaphaunce design by a
gunsmith named Tortiglione, which I had seen in an antique
auction. It's a beautiful handgun with distinctive lines,
I have one of my own that I adore. This pistol tucks
easily into a sash or large boot.
