For a similar example see page 164 of "British Military Pistols" by Robert Brooker. These were supplied from merchants and not from ordnance, thus they are also known as the 1813 Indian Contract pistols. Barrel measures 9" in length and 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 two indiscernible inspector's numerals. The lock has an unbridled pan and is marked "SUTHERLAND" with a crown broad arrow acceptance mark. Mountings are brass with a nice mellowed appearance. Left side of stock is stamped with a crown over "RJ" to the rear of the sideplate. The stock appears to be marked with two faint crown over "21" stamps beside the brass trigger guard. There is a "GR/ 1800" storekeeper's stamp at the wrist to the rear the lock carving. Ramrod is original. Ramrod channel bears four distinct lines superimposed over what appears to be a name. CONDITION: The barrel and lock retain an attractive smooth brown and gray patina. Brass mountings retain an as found mellow brown patina and are in very good condition. Stock is in very good condition, showing little sign of use. This is an excellent example in crisp as found original flintlock condition. DRG
