Product Description

A very fine New Land pattern flintlock Cavalry service pistol in good condition.

The 9 inch (23 cm) barrel has several proof and inspection marks with numbers. The lock has the Georgian crown with the letters GR (Georgius Rex) and there also a small crown and broad arrow and TOWER. The gun has very fine polished patina on the walnut wood with the Board of Ordnance stamp dated 1800. The cock is unusual in that it is a swan necked shape, instead of flat, but appears to be original to the gun (being quite early production) or have been a contemporary change. The gun has a captive swivel steel ramrod. The gun has the usual minor storage knocks to the wood. Good working order and fine condition.

Introduced in the 1796 and in widespread production by 1802, the New land Cavalry Pistol provided one model of pistol for all of Britain's cavalry and units such as the Royal Horse Artillery. Initially it started out with a rounded brass butt, such as this example, but this soon gave way to a flat butt with ring.

Size: 40 cm (15 ¾ inches)
