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 known 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. The lock has an unbridled pan marked "WILLETS" with a crown broad arrow acceptance mark. Mountings are brass with a nice mellowed appearance. The stock has two crown over "5" stamps beside the brass trigger guard. There is a good store keeper's stamp on the stock behind the lock carving. Ramrod appears to be a period replacement. CONDITION: Very good overall. Barrel has a mottled but clear unpitted surface. Lock has a clear unmottled appearance. Markings are excellent and minor dings to stock. A well executed pistol in original flintlock configuration. DRG
