Wooden flintlock pistol grip. 132 grams, 13" long. There was much excitement (as seen on the DVD) when this pistol was found, but by the time it was finished with conservation, all that was left was this wooden stock, a bit eroded but fundamentally intact, with channels where the flintlock, trigger, barrel, buttplate and various inlays once fit, now not only a significant artifact from an important wreck but also somewhat educational in showing how such guns were made. Featured prominently on the DVD about the salvage. Recovered from: “Coconut wreck,” sunk ca. 1810 in deep water off Bermuda
