A New Pistol

I got a new pistol kit yesterday - a nice early-18th century one. It is similar to the Sun King pistol found on the Whydah. The shape is generally the same as are the brass butt-piece and the trigger guard. The biggest difference is the side plate. Instead of the fancy one on the Sun King pistol, mine has a large, plain one. Plus there is the engraving. Mine came with a lion head instead of a Sun King insignia.

Today I fitted the barrel, butt cap, and side plate. More as I progress.
