M1835/46 Artillery pistol

The M1835 is identical to the M1834 in all regards except that the rail or comb iron is missing from the stock as this pistol was not designed to be used with a shoulder stock. The M1835 is said to originally have been made as a flintlock pistol, but I seriously believe that they never were delivered as anything but percussion – a good way of making some extra money for Kongsberg Våpenfabrikk. Billed as flintlocks, billed again for a percussion conversion that never took place? No pistols are known in flintlock version.

There were only made 502 of these – and by 1855 that was too few.
