Here is what the LA PISTOLE website says: http://www.lapistole.com/PRcavprereglementaires.html
As their name suggests, these pistols are not subject to regulation or manufacture. So they can be made by any gunsmith. At the end of the 17th and the beginning of the 18th century these pistols were very long, often around 60 cm. This is the legacy of arquebuses and wheel guns. Before the adoption of the 1733 model, the captains and owners of their army had their cavalrymen's pistols manufactured wherever they wanted. It was the same for the officers of the King's household. In 1666 the King asked TITON to create a "Royal Store" where the weapons available to the armies would be stored. The capitals will be able to supply themselves there. TITON therefore had weapons made in the gunsmith towns to fill this store located near the Bastille.
From the beginning of the 18th century, therefore, we find more or less homogeneous types that could be identified by body markings or the Magazin Royal mark. Often the pistols of the troops were lined with brass while those of the companies in the service of the king and the officers were rather lined with polished iron and even sometimes with silver.
