Very rare example of an Indo/Persian matchlock pistol. Most likely late 18th, early 19th century. Barrel length is 9 1/4", overall is 24". A tad bigger than .50 caliber. Missing it's rammer, but I plan to remedy that situation. Enjoy!

Thanks, it is in great condition. Pistols from that region, are very rare indeed. Even an extensive Google search turned up very few pictures of such. I did read that, although functional guns, they were mostly for show. Apparently a rich man's toy. Not unlike todays Texas cattle/oil man's "Barbeque" gun.
