ORNATELLY Engraved ECHEVERRIA Percussion Pistol
Manufactured in the Eibar Region of Spain Mid-1850s
Here we present an Echeverria Percussion Pistol, made circa mid-1850s in the Eibar region of Spain by José Cruz Echeverria. The Eibar region has been a center of weapons development and manufacture for centuries, with “Spanish Steel” historically being a selling point with its reputation for quality and durability. When firearms came into being, Eibar retained its edge as a weapons manufacturing center. Echeverria and his sons went on to form Star Bonifacia Echeverria, S.A., which manufactured small arms (primarily handguns and sub-machine guns) in the Basque region of Spain and closed its doors in 1997.
The overall condition is good. The iron parts have a dark gray patina. The markings are clear. The engraving is sharp. The stock has hairline cracks throughout which remain stable. The captive ramrod is in good shape. The bore is smooth and dark. The action is excellent, strong and crisp.
