George Washington's favorite pistol was made in London in 1748 by Hawkins, one of the best known gun makers of the period, and it still survives as a national treasure. Elegant in its design, the gun combines simple, clean lines with tasteful silver decoration. This non-firing replica has all of the features of the original, including the George Washington nameplate on the grip. This beautiful non-firing replica features a full length wood stock with antique brass finish barrel, antiqued black lock plate and hammer assembly, complemented with simulated silver butt plate, trigger guard and beautifully ornate and detailed stock furniture. Rotate the frizzen, cock the hammer, and pull the trigger – the hammer falls just as it did for George Washington more than 250 years ago. This elegant and ornate replica represents a most significant moment in early American history.

  The 10 Days That Changed The World, Washington's Crossing the Delaware. The Battles of Trenton and Princeton. A remarkable situation of two battles that changed everything for the War against the British (King George III). Previously there were a few small wins for the continental army and "The Battle of New York" nearly ended everything. Without these two battles there would have not been a United States of America.
General Washington carried a set of flintlock pistols with him during the Revolutionary War. A Curator takes a close look at these rare objects which are part of the collection at Mount Vernon.
Note: You must 18 years of age or older to purchase this pistol. These handsome collector model guns are made of antique finished zinc cast metal and polished European hardwoods. The screw heads are molded into the metal and cannot be removed. These models cannot withstand misuse or excessive dry-firing. Cannot be made to fire real ammunition.
