Spanish Miquelet (D2)
Early Spanish gunsmiths, swayed by German fashions, produced finely crafted but austere wheel locks before developing the miquelot. This lock derived its name in the late 19th century from the miquelets, Spanish mercenaries who carried Spanish lock muskets during the Napoleonic Wars between 1805 and 1813. They saw extensive service with the Spanish explorers during their expeditions during the Age of Discovery and ensuing colonization. This firearm in a .80 caliber percussion pistol. Very Good condition. Please contact us to purchase.
