This is a very cool looking pistol! This is gun that is officially known as the British Sea Service pistol for Coast Guard Service. This finely crafted pistol is made with a .56 caliber (pistol bore). It has the full-length 6 inch pinned round barrel. They have the blued barrel, with the color casehardened lock and hammer. The lockplate still has the original case colors visible. The mechanics of the lock still catch nicely on both positions. These have the brass furniture that include the triggerguard, ramrod channel guide and grip cap. On the bottom of the grip cap, it has the original lanyard ring intact. The brass looks beautiful beside the walnut stock. These guns are made with the ramrod that has the swivel to keep it from getting lost. The original rod is intact. .The lockplate is crisply marked with the British Crown over the "VR" lettering. It also has the "TOWER" arsenal mark with the 1846 production. The lockplate also has the small Crown and Broad Arrow inspection stamps. At the breech of the barrel it has the correct British military proofs. On the wrist of the stock, it has the English Board of Ordnance "BO" stamp with the Broad Arrow ownership mark and numerous small inspection marks. The stock displays well with only the crack at the upper rear of the lock mortise as you see in the images. On the back side of the stock, opposite of the lockplate, it has the original belt hook. These hooks were popular because when being used on board the ship, the belt could be hooked onto the belt instead of having to use a belt holster. This is a very cool pistol with a classy look.
