Cal 69 percussion gun
|Periode:||Begin 19e eeuw|
Large navy gun, Belgian made, early 1800, percussion, calibre 69.
Manufacturer hallmark in the plate: DN topped with a crown. The mark of the unidentified Liège maker can be found notably on Dutch-Belgian and East India Company navy guns from the late 1700s to the early 1800s.
This model intended for export was unearthed some 20 years ago in the USA (Kentucky). This pistol was manufactured during the transition to percussion models (the Dutch-Belgian navy model not being suited, mainly because of its fragility, for this change).
Identical markings of the barrel and the wood (see photos) with outfitter marks.
Identical markings of the plate and the barrel (see photos) with outfitter marks.
Double ELG hallmarks (see pictures) above and under the barrel.
Important note: If you wish to fire this weapon, the small spring for trigger and arming is original (see disassembly photos), and should be replaced because the hammer is very difficult to lock (missing a piece of metal of this small spring and insufficient pressure to hold the hammer in armed position). Other original mechanical parts are in good condition apart from some signs of age, and work well, including strong mainspring (tested with plate removed and pressure to replace the small spring). The main spring holding screw has some wiggle room but holds everything together properly.
Collection item, uncommon, with signs of age of course (see photos), including marks and scratches on the wood and metal parts, but the gun is clean and well preserved.
