The flat lockplate has single line borders and is stamped "TOWER" in an arch at the tail. In the center there is a large stamped crown over "GR" and below the pan there is a crown with a broad arrow. The reinforced cock also has single line borders. The pistol retains its original belt hook, stamped on the rear finial with a crown over "6". Standard brass Pattern 1801 furniture. . The full length partially figured walnut stock is stamped on the back of the grip near the top with a crown over a broad arrow over the date "1805". A relief beaver tail surrounds the barrel tang. There are also a series of crown markings and numbers on the ramrod channel and two crown over "9" inspection stamps on the right side of the grip, just above the trigger guard. Complete with its original brass-tipped wooden ramrod. CONDITION: The iron components on this pistol are polished bright and the markings are excellent.

A very fine example of this Napoleonic Pattern.
