Russian soldier’s pistol, model of 1809, with intlock.

Overall length - 43.3 cm; barrel - 26.5 cm; caliber - 1,58 cm. The pistol consists of a stock, a barrel, a intlock (no trigger), and a brass instrument. The pis- tol’s box is massive, made of dark-brown wood (birch, nut) with a long, muzzle without a ramrod entrance. The barrel is conical in shape, has a round cross-section at the muzzle, in the central part, and faceted in the breech. The back of the trigger guard is secured in the box with a screw in a brass oval plate with the monogram of Russian Emperor Alexander I - “A I” under the Imperial crown. The trigger is xed on the axis (transverse pin). There is a stamp of the Tula Arms Plant and the year of issue «Tula 1813» and the letter «U». As a sighting device, the gun is equipped with a roun- ded-shaped brass front sight. In addition to the name of the manufacturer and the year of release, there are other markings on the arms, as well as technological stamps: “PP” with the emblem of the Russian empire in a circle on the breech; on the left is the number «15»; on the shank + part of the barrel - poorly readable stamp; on the trigger guard - «PF» + poorly readable stamp; on the backplate - two stamps; on the handle the gure “1761” and the monogram of Emperor Alexander I under the imperial crown on a brass oval plate. It is dif cult to say exactly how many pistols of the model of 1809 were produced. Pistols of the model of 1809, released before 1812 are extremely rare due to combat losses during the war. Russia, Tula Arms Plant, 1813. Condition: good, no trigger.
