A rare American Revolutionary War era French model 1777 military flintlock pistol calibre approx .69. The lock plate is engraved Maubeuge. Standard military issue brass butt-cap, trigger guard and frame. Steel belt hook and ramrod. This first type of Model 1777 was produced with a belt hook, which was retained by a mounting screw under the brass frame. The French Model 1777 Maubege Pistol was made at the armoury at Maubeuge. It's historical significance to the American Revolutionary War was that the French recognised the United States of America’s independence and sovereignty in 1778 and thus declared war on Great Britain as the fledgling nation’s ally. The French had begun sending arms and supplies to the U S in 1775 secretly and with their new alliance France provided the U.S. with loans, arms and even troops to fight on U. S. soil. Both French and American troops were armed with these pistols during the Revolutionary war. Action in good working order. In good condition showing some signs of use and wear. A good example of a American revolutionary war era pistol and is the exact model pistol that the earliest U.S. gun makers copied for manufacture of military pistols on home ground. Ref 2966.
