Original British James II Flintlock Dragoon Pistol by Brooke 1685-1688
Original Item: Only One Available. Part of the IMA private collection for more than 50 years! One of the first English Regulation pistols. It has a 14" octagon to round barrel in .62 caliber. This is one of the earliest martially (military) marked British pistols ever made! The lock bears the royal cypher of a crown over J2R along with the maker name BROOKE across the tail. This maker was ROBERT BROOKE of LONDON. The lock has three side nails (screws) and brass mounts. The barrel bears proof marks and has very light slow twist rifling.

IMA considers all of our antique guns as non-firing, inoperable and/or inert. Title 18, U.S. Code, Section 921(a)(16) defines antique firearms as all guns made prior to 1899. This law exempts antique firearms from any form of gun control or special engineering because they are not legally considered firearms. No FFL, C&R or any license is required to posses, transport, sell or trade Antique guns. All rifles and muskets sold by IMA that were manufactured prior to 1899 are considered Antiques by the US BATF (United States Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco & Firearms). Therefore, all of IMA's Antique guns may be shipped to all US States and most nations around the world.
These antique guns are not sold in live condition. They are sold as collectors items or as wall hangers.
