Large, Prussian flintlock pistol, mid-1700s to early 1800s, marked PaTZDAM MAGAZ on lockplate. 1801 grams; 24" long. Impressively long pistol with steel ramrod extending well past the 11/16" bore (long, round barrel), simple brass furniture with crowned-FR monogram in emblem on grip, the stock all intact, excellent working order. It is widely believed that the monogram refers to Frederick the Great and the name on the lockplate to Potsdam, and also there is some evidence that guns like this were used by Prussian troops in the American Revolutionary War.
