I have always admired the work of Nicholas Hawk.... So I decided to make a pistol similar to the one that was once owned by Carl Pippert. I was unable to locate photos of the top and bottom views of this pistol.. So a real copy was not possible,, But I tried to keep all the parts I made like those on his long guns. Trigger guard and lock bolt plate I copied from his rifle..The brass barrel inlay from his swivel breech rifle. I made everything but the lock and it is old. The barrel is 10 inches long.
