I have here a flintlock pistol I purchased recently. There was no identification other than “old gun” I was wondering for anybody could tell me around wha time it’s from, the maker and the origin, as well as any other information.

I am by no means an expert in old guns. I have seen guns similar to that were made in the middle east (Turkey)
Usually no marks and very decorative.

It is most likely a tourist / wall hanger piece. And not really meant to be fired.
The originals had much finer workmanship and sad to say , that piece is rather crude even for a replica.

Sorry for the bad news.

Google "Turkish flintlock pistol copy"

Go to images. You will see similar guns
