flintlock pistol, standard-issue model of the French army, year IX type. The weapon is in good condition and works normally. These pistols were all manufactured by the Maubeuge factory. They were intended to equip the Imperial Gendarmerie... but became famous for a completely different reason: their small size and their ‘deterrent’ calibre for small weapons led to its being adopted as a ‘stepping out’ weapon by the officers of the Imperial Army, whether they belonged to the gendarmerie... or not. Indeed, it was at that time the only small regulation pistol in existence, and it could easily be slipped into a suit pocket, which you could not do with a year XIII model, for example (far too big). This pistol was therefore the weapon that was systematically found in the uniform pockets of imperial officers when they went out and did not want to be encumbered by their combat equipment.
