1731 French Pistol


Prior to 1733, there was no official pattern for French military pistols. With that said, by the late 1720’s through the early 1730’s they did begin to take on a somewhat standard form, with minor variations. One of more popular variations has come to be referred to today as the ‘1731 Pattern.’ With the exception of having a bridleless frizzen and having a slightly longer grip, the 1731 Pattern is identical to the pistol which was finally adopted as the official one in 1733.
