Description

C1810 Liege Belgium .700 Calibre Flintlock British Royal Navy / Merchant Navy Sea Service Pistol With Brass Fittings. Sn 17558:7 - 17558:7

During the 18th century the British Royal Navy began standardising their Naval small arms. One such weapon was the Sea Service flintlock pistol. These weapons were used by the British Royal Navy throughout the Wars with neighboreing France 1750- 1815. Due to heavy production demands for Sea service pistols during the Napoleonic Wars the British Admiralty turned to their Belgian allies to produce Sea Service pattern pistols to supplement dwindling British made supplies. Liege pistols, although not the fine quality of the British version were robust, heavy and well made. Our Liege made Sea service pistol was most likely one of those made for the British Navy in the Napoleonic war era and is in very good as found, un-messed with condition. It measures 15 ½” overall with a 9” browned steel barrel. The smooth bore has just light staining consistent with age & use. The barrel has an indistinct ‘M’ or ‘3’ mark (illustrated). The heavy walnut full stock has brass furniture and fixed steel lanyard ring. The lock plate is plain steel and has a faint Crown above ‘ON’ mark (illustrated). The cocking and firing actions works as they should with a strong spring action. The wood stock has just the bumps and bruises to be expected with age and service use and the metalwork has nice even patina throughout. It has a heavy military hammer. The price includes UK delivery. NB As an antique flintlock pistol no licence is required to own this item in the UK if retained as a part of a collection or display. Sn 17558:7
