Item Description

Original Item: Only One Available. These are very rare, and seldom seen on the market, especially in the original flintlock configuration. This is the scarce Danish Model of 1795 Dragoon/Naval Flintlock pistol, produced during the reign of King Christian VII of Denmark,  who reigned 1766 - 1808. This pistol is the transitional model between the longer Model of 1772 and the shorter Model of 1806. It has the shorter 10 1/2 barrel of the M1806, but still retains the ramrod from the M1772. After 1806 Denmark did away with the carrying of the ram rod from under the barrel, as it was considered a hindrance to mounted Dragoons and Sailors who thereafter kept the ram rod suspended from the saddle or belt.

The pistol features a nice Beech wood stock with heavy brass mounts and is very substantially made. 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.

Condition is quite nice, though most of the proofs are worn away, except for HV or RV on the lock. The action works well, though it can be a bit finicky, so the tumbler or sear spring may need adjustment.

A seldom seen military pistol, ready to display!
