Original Danish Napoleonic Era Model 1772 Flintlock Dragoon and Naval Pistol
Original Item: Only One Available. This is the classic large Flintlock pistol which served both with the Army's Dragoons and the Danish Navy from it's adoption in 1772 and throughout the Napoleonic Wars when Denmark took the side of the French.
Denmark was effectively eliminated as a fighting force with the Naval Battle of Copenhagen in 1801. This was the Battle when then Vice Admiral Horatio Lord Nelson ignored the order "to withdraw" from his commanding Admiral Sir Hyde Parker by putting his telescope to his "Blind eye" saying "I see no signal". He then went onto to completely decimate both the Danish and Norwegian fleets. The Battle of Copenhagen has always been regarded as Nelson's hardest battle.
This Danish Flintlock Pistol has a 13-inch barrel though the markings have been worn. Usually it would have the C 7 marking for Christopher the 7th. It also has 791 on the side of the barrel, which may be the manufacture date. The pistol is 20 inches overall length and has all brass mounts.
A Classic military flintlock pistol that faced England during the Napoleonic Wars, complete with a wooden ramrod with a horn tip.
