For a similar example see page 164 of "British Military Pistols" by Robert Brooker. These pistols were supplied from merchants and not from ordnance, thus they are often referred to 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 what appears to be a crown over "14". The lock has an unbridled pan, center of plate marked "ROLFE" with a crown-broad arrow acceptance mark. Mountings are brass. The stock appears to have two very faint crown over "5" stamps beside the brass trigger guard. There is a "JO" stamp behind the sideplate. There is a good crown over "GR/ 1800" store keepers stamp on the stock behind the lock carving. Ramrod is an old replacement. CONDITION: The steel barrel and lockplate retain a smooth mottled pewter patina. Metal stampings are in crisp and excellent condition. Lock is in its original flintlock configuration. Brass mountings have been cleaned at some point and now retain a mellow appearance. Stock is good condition, with some distressing above the trigger guard and other minor dings. DRG
