This is an untouched 1796 British Regulation Cavalry pistol designed for light cavalry.

The barrel is marked with ordnance proof marks on the left side. The lock is engraved with a crown over "GR" in front of the cock along with a crowned broad arrow below the pan. Engraved behind the cock is "TOWER". Original captive ramrod is intact. The lock plate measures 5.25" long, the barrel measures 9" long with a bore diameter of 0.66", and the pistol overall measures 15.5". Brass mounted while the iron hardware has a pleasing patina with little or no pitting. Some wood loss from period use but the age patina is wonderful. Original flint configuration.  [PE] [ph:L]
