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 also 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 a crown over "39". The lock has an unbridled pan, lockplate marked "BLAIR" with a crown broad arrow acceptance mark. Mountings are brass with a nice mellowed appearance. Ramrod appears to be a period replacement. CONDITION: Very good overall. Barrel retains a dark patina showing light pitting throughout. Lock is in its original flintlock configuration retaining a dark patina en suite with the barrel. Brass furniture was once cleaned and now retains a nice mellow patina and shows usual scattered marks from use. Brass pommel cap shows marks and indentations from use. Markings are good. Lock is a very good professional reconversion. Stock is good showing usual minor dings and handling marks, as well as a crack at the tip of the ramrod channel that bears a few minor losses. A well made pistol. DRG
