Original British Napoleonic Dublin Castle Flintlock Light Dragoon Pistol marked 7th Light Dragoons - Circa 1800
Original Item: Only One Available. This Flintlock Pistol dates to prior the Battle of Waterloo, however the 7th Light Dragoons did take part in the great battle that finally defeated Napoleon Bonaparte in 1815, so it might just have been there. The Lock Plate is marked Crown / G.R. with DUBLIN / CASTLE across the lock's tail in a shield. This makes this pistol an example of the very rare Dragoon Pistols made in DUBLIN CASTLE as opposed to the TOWER ARMORIES in London
The pistol is a standard full stocked flintlock pistol and has all brass mounts. The bow of the brass trigger guard and the barrel are engraved E / 6 representing the 6th man in "E" Company of the 7TH LIGHT DRAGOONS, which is also marked on the barrel (7 L - D). The ramrod is brass mounted walnut and not of the 'swivel" type, later introduced as the New Land Pattern. Trooper's carved initials in the fore stock A.B.. At The Battle of WATERLOO on June 18th 1815, the 7th Light Dragoons were held in reserve, until they took part in the Great Charge of the Union Brigade against the French.
In fine tight and all original condition showing no restoration in fine condition. 9" .65" smooth bore barrel bearing British Proof Marks.
