This is a replica of a late 17th century flintlock pirate pistol. Beautifully crafted by skilled artisans, this Pirate Pistol is a replica 17th century flintlock pistol that embodies quality and attention to detail.
At 44 cm long this is a life sized reproduction piece that feels reassuringly weighty to hold.Made from wood, with barrel and forniments in burnished cast metal, this 17th century replica flintlock pistol is not a flashy display piece, but has been crafted to have a distinguished superiority that speaks for itself.
This pistol features an older, chunkier, plain form of stock that is closer to those found on the early flintlock pistols of the 17th century, and a lock of a style developed in France in that century.
The zinc-alloy used in this late 17th Century European flintlock pistol replica is softer than the steel and brass that the barrel and lock components would have originally been forged in. Despite this European 17th century flintlock pistol being made from materials that are unsuitable for use in real firearms, the firing mechanism does work and the pistol makes a satisfying “clunk” when the trigger is pulled.
With its working firing mechanism, this reproduction pistol would make an ideal prop for Re-enactment, Stage and TV performances.
The pistol comes in original packaging, with an information booklet that explains in summary the history of pistols, and the impact they had on society in 16th to 17th centuries.
This is just one in our collection of iconic Flintlock replica pistols.
