Description

Largest selection of genuine antique weapons for sale in UK. See our website andrewbottomley.com Ref 3662. A rare British military officer's flintlock pistol dating from the time of the Napoleonic Wars, Circa 1803-1815. The pistol fitted with a swivel steel captive ramrod and with typical British military brass butt cap, trigger guard, side plate and fore-end pipe. Walnut Stock. This is a good example of a British military Flintlock pistol carried by officers, with the TOWER mark stamped to the lock-plate, showing that it was manufactured at the Tower of London armoury. Broad arrow and a Crown over GR for George 111 is engraved on the lock plate. George the Third was King of England from 1760 to 1820 and was monarch during some of the most turbulent years in British military history, mainly due to the lengthy wars going on in the Peninsular campaigns against the French led by Napoleon Bonaparte, as well as the uprising against the British crown in the USA, known as the American Revolutionary War. Nice crisp action. Some damage to the stock at the rear of lock-plate, a small repair to the underneath of wooden stock around the ramrod entry otherwise in good overall condition. Ref 3662. This is an obsolete antique item and is sold as a collectors item only. No Licence is required in the United Kingdom. If you wish to purchase this item please visit our website andrewbottomley.com where you can pay by credit/debit card. Established 1968.
