NAVAL FINTLOCK DAGGER PISTOLNobleWares Image of 47-8799 Wood Grip Naval Flintlock Dagger Pistol by REPLICART of Spain (47-8799) by REPLICART
The flintlock pistol was notoriously slow to reload - a severe limitation in close encounters of the dangerous kind! Many solutions to the problem were tried, but one of the more successful was a pistol/dagger combination, whereby a very effective weapon was still to hand after the shots had been fired (or maybe not fired - misfires with flintlocks were common). The original of this pistol was made in London, early in the 18th. century and the skill of the maker is very evident. This non-firing replica is accurate in size and detail - a great costume or conversation piece. Manufactured in Spain.

Often a ships captain would have a pistol sword or dagger commissioned for him as a sign of his superiority. A gunsmith would decorate the stock with silver and gold or ornate carvings. The doghead would be carved in some ornate fashion or perhaps be shaped like a lion, unicorn or some animal from the royal crest of the owner. In many ways such weapons in the 18th century would hold the same place of honor as a luxury car or expensive watch might today.

  These collector dagger pistols are made of antique finished zinc cast metal. The screw heads are molded into the metal and cannot be removed. These models cannot withstand misuse or excessive dry-firing. Cannot be sharpened or made to fire real ammunition.
