Only 1,626 made by Simeon North between 1813 and 1815. The original government contract called for 20,000 of these, but due to harsh recoil and large size, this was revised. This contract is also important because it was the first time that a gun maker offered a product with interchangeable parts. Round smoothbore steel barrel stamped "P/US" on left side of breech and "HHP" on right side, above touch hole. Flat beveled lockplate with rounded tail, brass pan, and reinforced cock, center of lockplate stamped "S. NORTH/U./eagle/S./MIDDLN. CON." Standard Model 1813 steel furniture with Wickham band. Walnut half-stock with wooden ramrod. Good condition, steel components have been cleaned and retain a light grey patina, some minor freckling at breech, lock professionally reconverted. Stock refinished with a few areas with replaced wood. This is a fine example of a scarce and early American martial pistol.Barrel Length: 9"Caliber/Bore: .69 boreFFL Status: AntiqueManufacturer: S.
