Dated Flintlock Heavy Dragoon Horse Pistol for Restoration

An Interesting Flintlock Heavy Dragoon Horse Pistol Marked 1771 Recovered in Chestertown, Maryland

Heavy Dragoon Horse Pistol for Restoration

A large flintlock heavy dragoon horse pistol 15 bore/.675”,  13” octagonal to round with top flat and long brass bead fore sight. Integral tang with inspectors marking and grooved rear sight. No marks visible on barrel - underneath barrel not removed/inspected.  Barrel has been converted to percussion in period but would be an easy reconversion to flint. Lock is missing - lockplate recess is  5.5“ long by  1“ height. Ramrod is missing. All iron furniture consisting of heavy ridged long eared butt cap, military type sideplate, ramrod pipe, trigger guard and trigger assembly present. Walnut stock is largely complete with some losses, feint 1771 marking under the stock and other markings which may be regimental. Carved raised comb around tang.


Overall length 20.5”. Whilst marked 1771, this pistol may well be earlier. Highly probable that it was used in the American Revolution. An impressive pistol.

Wogdon Officers Pistol for Restoration

A Flintlock Officers Pistol by Wogdon for Spare Parts or Re-conversion to Flint and Restoration

Wogdon for restoration

Flintlock officers pistol by Wogdon needing extensive restoration including replacing the missing lock - lock was 4.25” long (the Wogdon lock kit sold by E J Blackley & Son would be ideal).  25 bore 9.7” round barrel with top flat, London proofs to underside along with barrel makers mark of RW. Old drum and nipple conversion needs removal and area around drum will need re-profiling. Definitely an old Wogdon barrel as the RW is exactly right. Ramrod is an old replacement. Wogdon marked lock was removed and use for internal spare parts by previous owner. This not a restoration for the feint hearted! Would also be useful for spare parts - trigger guard, trigger assembly, tang, butt cap and side nail cups. Overall length 15”.

Flintlock Baker Rifle Stock and Patchbox

AN ORIGINAL BAKER RIFLE STOCK AND PATCHBOX

Baker Rifle

A rare original Baker rifle stock together with original patch box from an abandoned project. Wood is excellent for its age - some evidence of temporary repairs to a few splits (see photos) one from rear of lock inletting to triggerguard underneath and another split from front sidenail forward but each will restore virtually invisibly as there is no wood loss. Nicely inletted for all parts. Stock was probably from a Volunteer Baker. An excellent basis for building a Baker using replacement parts at a fraction of the cost of buying an original or repairing a similar Baker with a poor stock. 45.25 " long.

Restoration Project - Ex Museum Flintlock Signal Gun

A RARE EARLY 19TH CENTURY FLINTLOCK SIGNAL GUN REQUIRING RESTORATION

19TH CENTURY FLINTLOCK SIGNAL GUN REQUIRING RESTORATION

Ex SASC (Small Arms School Collection of the British Army). Weapons Collection inventory number 0143. Unusual and probably unique Flintlock Signal Gun circa 1800-1815, of hand-held form similar in shape to cannon igniters of the period, 24 1/2in. overall, the forward section approximately 10in. and formed of brass, rounded action with provision for flintlock mechanism (missing lockplate, hammer and frizzen), off-centre priming pan and tube leading to a circular bronze flash-pan 3 1/4in. in diameter with hinged bronze lid, the walnut tiller butt with brass trigger-guard and internal connecting rod (at fault), the grip-piece stamped '109' (action and flash-pan miss-shapen), retaining its Weapons Collection identity disk stamped 0143.

As mentioned, the shape of this signal gun is very similar to Cannon Igniters of the period such as the one sold at Bonhams Antique Arms Auction, 23rd May 2018, Lot 203 which sold for £4,750 with a defective action but complete. Very useful reference for restoration of this signal gun.
