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 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 and is marked "GALTON" with a crown broad arrow acceptance mark. Mountings are brass with a nice mottled and mellow appearance. The stock has two crown over "3" stamps beside the brass trigger guard. There is a "J.B." stamped behind the brass sideplate. There is a good store keeper's stamp on the stock at the grip behind the lock carving. Ramrod appears to be original. CONDITION: Very good overall. The barrel and lock retain a mellow pewter color and show no noticeable pitting. Lock is in its original flintlock configuration, cock possibly a period replacement as it is unengraved. All markings are excellent. The brass mounts have mottled mellow patina. Stock is very good retaining some of its original dark finish and has usual minor dings as expected. This is an excellent example of this Dragoon pistol. DRG
