FLINT LOCK PISTOL, 1800's

Land pattern Flintlock Pistol with no markings.
Guns like these were made by local blacksmiths to increase their trade.
The Land pattern style had a fixed Ramrod on a swivel attached to the barrel.

Your comments:

  • I have two of these, both with Tower of London proof marks and also East India Company stamps. These probably were not made by blacksmiths but by competent gunsmiths of the time. One gun is engraved on the butt cap 14th LD as in 14th Light Dragoons which I believe served in India at the time. Nice guns Nice provenance.
