Black powder/muzzleloader type:
|Model:||An IX De Gendarmerie Flintlock model|
|Stock/Frame finish:||Oil Finish|
A small muzzle loading pistol reproducing one of the most known pistol models of the Napoleonic epoch. As it happened for the cavalry pistols, it was manufactured in pairs and was produced until 1819 exclusively by the Imperial Manufacturer in Maubeuge for a total of 32,000 pairs. In spite of the production being assigned to the gendarmerie, these pistols were equipping also the infantry officers. The original martial look does not prevent a certain elegance that combined with the small dimensions, give this gun an undisputable fascination. The Gendarmerie An IX pistol can be supplied with a single pistol case or with a double case for a pair: a valuable complement that thanks to the glass lid will enhance the beauty of the gun.
