Original British Revolutionary War Era Flintlock Light Dragoon Pistol Marked Dublin Castle - circa 1770
Original Item: One Only. This fine martial flintlock pistol falls right between the Model of 1756 with the "rounded" brass elongated side plate, and the Model 1777 with the "flat" elongated side plate together with a belt hook. Clearly a transitional model very likely shipped to Boston with the Irish Garrison that occupied the city during the early years of the American Revolutionary War.
Our pistol has a 9" .65 caliber barrel, all brass mounts and the iron lock plate is marked with a CROWN over G.R. and with DUBLIN CASTLE across the tail.
It comes with brass tipped ramrod in a rich matured brown walnut stock.
Dublin Castle flintlocks are extremely rare with Light Dragoon Pistols being probably the very hardest to find. See BRITISH CAVALRY CARBINES & PISTOLS OF THE NAPOLEONIC ERA by Barry Chisnall and Geoffrey Davies published 2013, pages 144 and 145.
