With round turn-off cannon barrel, stamped with Tower proofs, engraved tutaneg action signed LONDON on one side and BUNNEY on the other, sliding trigger guard safety, slab sided butt inlaid with scrolling silver wire, complete with extremely unusual socket bayonet. There is a bayonet lug on at the muzzle of the barrel to fit this unusual bayonet. I have never seen another pistol like this.
