History Introduced in 1716, the Sea Service Pistol would see widespread use around the globe aboard the ships of the British Navy during the 18th and early 19th Century. In the Americas too, it was used from as early as King George’s War all the way through the War of 1812. In fact, it continued in production, with only slight variation, for more than 85 years. The 1716/77 Sea Service Pistol is distinguished from the Land Service Pistol of the same period by its plain buttcap (as opposed to the Land Service Pistol’s “long-eared” buttcap), lack of stock swell, and by its utilitarian belt hook.

Our Reproduction Our reproduction 1716/77 British Sea Service captures the beauty and utility of this long-lived favorite of naval warfare. It is stocked in darkly stained hardwood and features a 12 inch barrel surrounded at the tang by a raised apron. Brass hardware compliments the bright barrel and lock while the integrated belt hook makes for easy carrying about ones person. The weapon suits a variety of impressions, points well, has no visible modern markings. Like all of our weapons, it comes with a limited warranty and has been proofed for safety. The hammer has been adequately hardened and comes with a lifetime re-hardening guarantee.
