Here is a very cool gun! This is a very nice looking British Military flintlock pistol. This is the pattern that is known as a New Land Pattern Flintlock Pistol. It is crisply marked on the lock-plate in front of the hammer BRANDER & POTTS / LONDON". This marking is from the firm of Martin Brander and Thomas Potts and they used this marking from 1790 until 1801. The mechanics of the lockplate are still fully functional in all positions. This is the correct style for our War of 1812 timeframe as well as the European wars known as the Napoleonic Wars. The 9-1/8th inch barrel that was made without the proof marks. It has the correct English regulation brass military fittings for the grip cap, triggerguard, ramrod channel guide and nose cap. On the triggerguard, it has the regimental markings of "R4 / A / 45". This likely stands for the 4th regiment, A troop, 45th man. The sideplate has been replaced. It has the original swivel ram rod underneath the barrel. The gun has an overall length of 15-1/2 inches. The stock of the gun is made of a single piece of wood. It has had a few small repairs in more modern times and is priced accordingly. This is a very nice original Flintlock officer's pistol dating from the War of 1812 and Napoleonic era. What a great gun!
