BRITISH Antique TOWER Marked NEW LAND Pattern CAVALRY Style .65 FLINTLOCK
Early 1800s British MILITARY Pistol GEORGIAN CIPHER
Here we present an antique British Tower Marked New Land Pattern British Cavalry Style Flintlock Pistol, made circa the early 1800s in London, England. Introduced in 1796 and in widespread production by 1802, the New Land Cavalry Pistol provided one model of pistol for all of Britain’s cavalry units such as the Royal Horse Artillery. Initially it started out with a rounded brass butt, as is the example, but this soon gave way to a flat butt with a lanyard ring. The ring on the later pistols allowed the pistol to be attached to the cavalryman’s equipment and not be lost in the heat of battle. The famous East India Company made many of these for British Cavalry serving in India, who in turn brought them into service elsewhere in the world.
