Original Danish Model 1772 Heavy Dragoon and Naval Flintlock Pistol Regt. Marked 68F - circa 1790
Original Item: Only One Available. These are very rare, and seldom seen on the market, especially in the original flintlock configuration. This is a nice example of the Danish Flintlock model 1772 Dragoon/Naval Pistol with a 13" barrel and overall length of 20 inches. Its successor, the Model of 1806, was very similar but was not fitted for a ramrod and had a barrel of 10 1/2".
The pistol features a nice wood stock with heavy brass mounts and very substantially made. It bears number 7 stamped onto the side of the barrel and a lot of the fittings, which we assume is a matching number. There also is No.68F scratched into the left side of the barrel, most likely a regimental designation or rack number. The pistol is in overall very good condition, with a lovely patina. The lock functions correctly, holding at half cock and firing at full. However there does look to be an old brazed repair in the middle of the cock, fixed at arsenal long ago. It still has the original ramrod, with intact threads on the end.
These classic Danish pistols were in service throughout the Napoleonic wars, when Denmark allied itself to France and suffered two terrible Naval Defeats at the hands of the British, firstly by Admiral Horatio Nelson in 1800 and again in 1808, at what were to be known as the Battles of Copenhagen.
Originally in 1772 production was limited to 5,000 pieces, as Denmark is a relatively small country. A rare Military Pistol, ready to display!
