For a similar example see page 164 of "British Military Pistols" by Robert Brooker. These pistols were supplied from merchants and not from ordnance. They are often classified as the 1813 Indian contract pistols. Barrel is marked with a crown over "GR" and broad arrow, as well as a Tower crossed scepters acceptance stamp. The tang is stamped with a crown over "39". The top of the barrel appears to be stamped ".DFATH.HFAR.DURX." towards the breech. The "D" in the ".DURX." appears to have been lightly stamped, with part of the letter not being visible. The lock has an unbridled pan marked "WHEELER/ & SON" with a crown broad arrow acceptance mark. Mountings are brass. There is an oval over "JB" stamped on the stock, to the behind the sideplate and the stock has two indiscernible crown stamps beside the brass trigger guard. There is a partially visible store keepers stamp on the wrist behind the lock carving. Ramrod is probably an old replacement. CONDITION: Barrel and lock were cleaned at some time and retain a smooth light gray patina. There are traces of light rust in the pan and frizzen screw. All metal stampings are crisp and discernable. Brass mounts retain a smooth mellow patina. Stock has been cleaned at some point and retains a nice honey color with very minor distressing. DRG
