Description:
"

The French Model 1837 series of arms were some of the first percussion guns manufactured for the French military. This Model 1837 Naval and Marine pistol is approx. 11.5"" long. The 6"" round 60 caliber smooth bore barrel has an excellent bore. The barrel tang is marked Mle 1837 (Model 1837). All the metal is bright with light scattered staining. The lock is marked Mre Rle de Chatelleraault (Royal Manufactory of Chatellerault). The brass band, butt cap, and trigger guard have a pleasing age patina and have inspection marks. The butt cap is stamped with the naval anchor. The stock is very good with  the usage dents and dings expected of an issue gun. There are no cracks or chips. The captured ramrod and belt hook are present. The action functions correctly. This very nice example of the first French percussion naval pistol would fit any French or European percussion pistol collection.
