Waterloo Period French Cavalry Pistol

* * New Stock * * A Fine French Year 13 (1804-05) Model Cavalry Pistol Manufactured in the Year of Waterloo, 1815

French year 13 Cavalry Pistol

A French  An 13 (Year 13 or 1804/05) Cavalry Pistol, Manufacture Impériale de Maubeuge, 1815, near Museum Quality.  201mm barrel of musket .69 bore with five flats around breech which is marked EF on one side and 1815 on the other. Clear  "M'le an 13"  marking to tang. All original regulation brass furniture with clear inspector marks. Original steel button headed ramrod. Stock with inspectors marks and manufacturers roundel, original varnish with minimal handling marks. The best we have ever seen in totally original condition, obviously used from slight wear to frizzen face and pan but in superb order. Mild staining to iron parts, wood is excellent.


Maubeuge-made cavalry pistols are rare and this gun not only comes from this desirable manufactory but it also bears the historic date of 1815, indicating it was made after Napoleon returned from exile in March 1815 but before his defeat at Waterloo and abdication in June, after which the markings changed from “Impériale” to “Royale”. This pistol is in superb condition with all of the highly desirable Imperial markings in crisp condition: "M're  Imp'le  Maubeuge'"  the “Manufacture Impériale” on the lockplate and the “EF” (Empire Francaise) stamps on the barrel breech forward of the touch hole and the left side of the stock within a stamped acceptance roundel with the year date of 1815. This pistol was made for the Waterloo campaign and was probably used there. Extremely hard to find in such great condition, especially from Maubeuge.


The Year XIII is the successor to the Year IX pistol, although the Year IX was still in use throughout the First Empire (1804-1815). The Year XIII pistol shares many characteristics of the Year IX. The most obvious difference is in the manner of attaching the fore end band which is a different shape and has only one ring rather than the two of the Year IX resulting in the shortening of the wooden stock below the barrel. The other major difference is the fixing of the barrel band - on the Year IX it was held in place by a band spring and on the more robust Year XIII it was held in place by a screwed tang extending rearwards secured in place by the forward lockplate retaining screw. See "French Military Weapons 1717-1938" by Major James F Hicks, page 88.

William IV New Land Pattern Regulation Flintlock Cavalry Pistol marked to Yorkshire Hussars

A William IV New Land Pattern Flintlock Cavalry Pistol, circa 1830-1837, with regimental markings on trigger guard of 'YH' over 'G' over '27'.

Regulation brass furniture comprising domed butt cap, trigger guard with regimental marks, side plate, ramrod pipe and fore end cap. Captive swivel ramrod. 15 ½” overall.


The regimental mark of YH indicates that this pistol may have been made for the Portuguese contract (hence the crowned MR of Maria I from 1828-1853) but probably re-issued to the Yorkshire Hussars. For more information on the Portuguese contract please see British Military Pistols 1603-1888 by R.E. Brooker, Jr. There is no record of any Portuguese regiment linked with YH markings
