Late 18th Century British Military Pistol Converted to Percussion. .72 caliber 9" round barrel bearing several markings including "21st L. D." ( obviously 21st Light Dragoons), along with proofs. Flat lock plate vertically marked "Dublin / Castle" at rear, and "(crown) / GR" in the center. Rounded drum conversion with what appears to be the original engraved hammer of sporting rather than military style. Captive ramrod with swivels, iron belt hook affixed by two screws, brass mounts with "E / 8" engraved on the bottom of the trigger guard. Very nice walnut stock. Gun in overall excellent condition, just showing some honest wear. Two hairlines on left forestock with another to the rear of the ramrod channel, all readily closed/repairable. Some tiny wood chips missing below rear trigger guard tang and below rear of lock plate, minor. There is a 1/2" nicely replaced sliver to the right of the tang screw. Very scarce gun, as Dublin Castle ceased arms production in the early 1790s. Nice gun and especially desirable with these Regular Establishment British military marks.

    Estimate: $1,500 - $2,500.
