EAST INDIA COMPANY New Land Pattern FLINTLOCK CAVALRY Pistol EIC Antique 69
East India Company Indigenous Marking
Here we present an antique Indian/Nepalese New Land Pattern British Cavalry Style Flintlock Pistol, made circa 1802. 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, but this soon gave way to a flat butt with ring, making this rounded model one of the earliest ones produced. 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.
