Order Quantity:
This antique French Military pistol is marked Maubeuge on the lock plate. Stocked in walnut, trimmed in brass furniture. The iron barrel band appears to be a later addition to the pistol, and omits any form of band spring to secure it to the stock. It has developed a warm patina over the years.

The .70 caliber smoothbore barrel is 8" long. The bore is mostly bright, but does have light pitting running its entire length. The barrel has aged to a dark brown patina on the exterior. No sights are fitted on a pistol of this design, which were used by mounted troops at short range.

The pistol grip is fitted with a brass bird's head cap. The walnut stock shows many handling marks and dings from well over a century of use. The brass triggerguard has aged to a dark patina. There is a crack in the rear of the grip rail on the guard. The steel barrel band easily slides off the forearm. The ramrod is missing from this pistol.

The large flint lock matches those used on 1763/66 French Military pistols. It has aged to the same brown patina as the barrel. The lock plate is marked Maubeuge along with a proof mark. The lock still functions correctly. The side panel is fitted with a classic French designed brass sideplate that two bolts pass through to engage the lock on the opposite side. The side plate is stamped with an inspector's proof mark. The single trigger is pinned high to provide a smooth release.

This smoothbore pistol has the sleek lines, graceful balance, the patina of age, and the eye appeal of a fine original antique. Order it for a ten day visual inspection. You will be delighted. Else if it does not fit you, return it in unfired condition for same-day refund. Postage is your only risk, when you order any one-of-a-kind gun from Track, whether new, used, or antique.
