Details

"Flintlock" pistols were so called because the lock uses a flint to strike sparks into the priming pan when the trigger is pulled. A small amount of gunpowder in this pan is ignited, which in turn ignites the main gunpowder charge in the barrel, firing the lead ball. Both the main charge and the ball were loaded from the front, or muzzle, of the barrel, after which the priming charge was poured into the pan - all very time consuming! Often the priming charge would burn but fail to ignite the main charge - whence the expression "flash in the pan!" This non-firing version is accurately detailed - a great costume or conversation piece.

 

This is beautiful non-firing replica pistol with fully working mechanisms.

    Nice replica
    Review by Jack
    It's made of wood and has a nice metal finish with nice detailing. Is quite heavy and was a little bigger than expected. The wood is carved well and the metal looks slightly weathered. Perfect for decoration or as a prop.
