Jordan Flintlock Heavy Dragoon Pistol

.70 caliber, 12" barrel, no S/N. A rare and extremely desirable George II period heavy dragoon flintlock martial pistol. The early banana-shaped lock with {crown} / GR and Jordan, 1746. The lock has all its original small parts, including frizzen top jaw and cock. The long 12" barrel with British Board of Ordinance proofs "GR." Brass mounts comprising spurred heavy brass butt cap and a molded walnut full stock. Stock is stamped "20." These heavy dragoon pistols were used extensively throughout Colonial America and in the 7-Years War (French and Indian War). The ramrod with brass tip, possibly an original.


The lock with only minor surface pitting and barrel has minor pitting throughout its length, to be expected from one of these extremely rare early dragoon pistols. Brass mounts in crisp condition throughout. Triggerguard with minor casting flaw and period repair. The molded walnut full stock is in excellent condition for one of these early heavy dragoon pistols, appearing to have considerable original finish and no significant defects.
