Re: 4 barrel flintlock pistol
It is hard to assess the age of such a thing, but it was most certainly not "Made in England", nor did it pass the Birmingham Nitro Proof test. I suspect it is one of the many fake "Arabian" guns turned out in relatively recent years in the middle east, more for sale to tourists than as any kind of serious weapon. It is hard to tell from the pictures if it is actually capable of being fired, but many of those guns have locks that are decorative rather than functional.
