Maker: Jacob Kunz
Jacob Kunz Kentucky pistols are among the most sought after Kentucky pistols today. It has a lovely 3 stage, 9" barrel Octagon,to wedding band, to round, marked J. Kunz PHILAD. All of the brass furniture is finely engraved in typical Kunz fashion. This is a very find example of this iconic maker. There appears to be a scratch or a hairline fracture through the thinnest part of the wrist, that has been repaired. It is barely discernible to the naked eye. You really have to be looking at it to see it. The curly maple stock is nicely checkered. This is a fantastic KUNZ pistol that is difficult to improve on. The mate to this pistol is still in existence ??? Former Joe Murphy collection.
