Sea Service Pistol

 
 



History

    Introduced in 1716, the Sea Service Pistol saw widespread use around the globe aboard ships of the British  Navy during the 18th and early 19th century. In the Americas too, it was used from as early as King George’s War all the way through the War of 1812. In fact, it continued in production, with only slight variation, for more than 85 years. The 1716/77 Sea Service Pistol is distinguished from the Land Service Pistol of the same period by its plain buttcap (as opposed to the Land Service Pistol’s “long-eared” buttcap), lack of stock swell, and by its utilitarian belt hook.


Our Reproduction

It is stocked in hardwood and features a 12 inch barrel surrounded at the tang by a raised apron. Brass hardware compliments the bright barrel and lock while the integrated belt hook makes for easy carrying about ones person. The weapon suits a variety of impressions, points well, and has no visible modern markings. Like all of our weapons, it comes with a limited warranty and the frizzen has been adequately hardened.
