Heavy Dragoon

 
 



History


The 1738 Land Service (Heavy Dragoon) Pistol is as legendary as it is beautiful. It features the distinctive “long-ear’d” buttcap, elliptical aprons, and stock swell, and was produced, with minor variations, from the 1740’s to the 1790’s. It was constructed in two caliber - either pistol-bore (.56 cal.) or carbine-bore (.66 cal.). The handgun’s lock maintained the unique “banana shape” and incorporated a double bridle. The 1738 pistol saw action in the French & Indian War, Revolutionary War, frontier actions, and even was used as late as the War of 1812.
