This Light Dragoon Pattern was deveoped by Col. Eliott  to replace the 10" barrel pattern of 1756 and remained in use as the standard through the American Revolution used by the British 16th & 17th Light Dragoons. This smaller and lighter dragoon pistol had less decorative brass features and lighter carving than the heavy dragoon.  The tail of the lock is marked "EDGE" (the maker), 1760 plus the crown with GR on the side of the plate.  This pattern can be seen on pg. 236 of "Battle Weapons of the American Revolution" by: George C. Newman.

At this time we accept checks and money orders for musket and pistol purchases.  We will accept payments through PayPal for gun smith services and other accessory items only.  Accessory items include things like bayonets, powder horns, gun socks, etc. which are in compliance with PayPal acceptable use policies.  If you have any questions please feel free to ask.


All of the locks of our muskets and pistols are removed and checked for good function.  The frizens are case hardened to ensure a nice spark and the breech is drilled with a 3/32" vent hole.

As a value added service we will "break down" the lock, polish all mated moving parts and harden the tumbler and sear for improved lock performance and reliability.  This added service is $50.00

We warranty out locks for one year parts and labor.  All you need to do is get the lock to us.  Neglect of the lock (heavy rust) and amateur tinkering will void the warranty.  Our turn around time for repair is very fast so please be sure to take advantage our our professional service.  Be sure to contact us for instructions before sending it in.

India flintlock musket and pistols are not proofed by the country of manufacture nor is there a U.S. standard for muzzle loaders to proof by.

We do offer a test firing service using a double black powder charge and a double ball load.  This is an additional service and you can read more about it on the Q & A page.

If you are not happy with your purchase you can return it postmarked within 7 days of the date you received it for a refund of the purchase price of the item returned.  Shipping costs are not refunded.

If you have any questions about our policies please feel free to ask.
