Original U.S. M-1826 Flintlock Navy Belt Pistol Converted to Percussion by Simeon North - dated 1827

Item Description

Original Item: Only One Available. This is a totally correct U.S. M-1826 Flintlock Navy pistol made by Simeon North in Middletown, Connecticut that has been converted to the percussion ignition system. North had a 53 year relationship with the U.S. War Department, and the contract for the Model 1826 pistols was the last contract North had for martial pistols from the U.S. Government. The North Model 1826 Navy Pistol is virtually a smaller version of the Model 1819 with a few slight alterations. It is most readily identifiable from the sharp angle of the grip that is not seen on Model 1819 pistols. Most of these pistols were converted to percussion later in the 19th century, such as this one has been.

Marked on the lock plate with U.S. over S. NORTH and dated 1827 on the lock plate tail. This pistol has a brass blade front sight and an oval sight near the tang, though after conversion the sights are not usable. There are traces of proof marks on the barrel breech, but they are illegible.

The pistol still retains its swivel "captured" ramrod, this pistol has all steel mounts and also its original iron belt hook. Steel and iron surfaces shows old staining from rust and pitting but the pistol is still in tight working condition and is ready to display.

A good example of a hard to find naval pistol, ready to display.
