Officer's Flintlock Pistol- c. 1800-1830
- Media Type:
- This officer's flintlock pistol features a brass butt plate, a trigger guard and a ramrod holder. The pistol is made of walnut with a steel barrel. This pistol dates from 1800-1830 and would likely be similar to those used in the War of 1812.
This ramrod is wood with a brass cap. It was likely used to aid in the loading of a firearm.
Further research conducted in 2010 states the British Light Dragoon Pistol dates from 1760 - 1780. It has a rammer and brass end and has a missing frisson cover.
