For another example see figure 58 on page 150-151 of "British Military Pistols" by Robert Brooker. The tapered round barrel has two British ordnance proofs on the left side towards the breech as well as a crown stamped at the back of the barrel tang. The flat lockplate has engraved double line borders and is engraved "TOWER" in an arch at the tail. In the center there is a large engraved crown over "GR" and below the pan there is a crown with a broad arrow. The reinforced cock also has engraved double line borders. The pistol retains its original belt hook and is stamped on the rear finial with a crown over "6". Standard brass Pattern 1801 furniture. The full length plain walnut stock is stamped on the back of the grip near the top with a crown over a broad arrow over the date "180- and behind the belthook with a large "IG". 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 bright and the markings are excellent. Lock is in its original flintlock configuration and is mechanically excellent. Brass furniture retains a mellowing patina, showing a couple light storage marks. Stock shows some minor storage marks and a chip missing above the rear lock tang. A very fine example of this Napoleonic Pattern. DMG
