Product Information

This is a superb condition Galton 1796 Pattern Dragoon percussion pistol. Originally it was manufactured with a flint lock action and was later converted to percussion using a drum and nipple configuration. The initials on the wood work indicates that the conversion took place between 1831 to 1837. During this period the Galton family were well known within the gun trade, predominately producing large quantities of guns for the slave trade in Africa. Galton was one of the original Guardians of the Birmingham proof house. The pistol bears London proofs and is fitted with its original ram rod. The action is still incredible crisp and tight and holds back on full and half cock perfectly. The calibre is .069.

Chambered in an obsolete calibre it can be owned live without any form of license.

It is being sold as a collectors piece only.
