This rare, large flint pistol with a length of 42 mm was the first model of a prescribed flint pistol under the Ancien Régime; it was a gift during the reign of Louis XV where it equipped both the cavalry and the mounted police company; it is exceptional because of its rarity and very difficult to find in such a beautiful state of preservation, it should occupy a prominent place in a collection of French regulated weapons.
