My Access Heritage French 1733 .60 Cavalry Pistol and target from two hours ago.
Pistol has been worked on to make it function properly. I have six guns from A H and all are very shootable after some adjustments to improve function.

In the history of Bunker Hill by Nathaniel Philbrick he quotes an Ebenezer Banccroft using his venerable musket taken from the French in Canada to escape as the British surged into the works.
I suspect many F&I veterans in New England had French guns from their service.
