NAPOLEONIC 1806 FLINTLOCK PISTOLNobleWares Image of Napoleonic 1806 non-firing replica Flintlock Pistol model 1063 by Denix of Spain (1063) by DENIX
A historic period piece, Napoleon’s personal flintlock pistol was made in 1806 by Jean-Baptiste Gribeauval, of St. Etienne and is preserved in a French museum. History records the fact that it was used as a traveling pistol, carried by Napoleon in his overcoat. Napoleon's Crowned Seal is prominently displayed on the grip and the gunmaking talents of Gribeauval are readily apparent. This non-firing replica has all of the features of the original, including full length wood stock with antique grey finish barrel, frizzen and lock plate, complemented by engraved simulated brass butt plate, trigger guard, pan and beautiful ornately detailed stock furniture. Rotate the frizzen, cock the hammer, and pull the trigger – the hammer falls just as it did for Napoleon more than 200 years ago. This non-firing replica is accurately detailed and provides a great collector and conversation piece reminding us of an era when the world was in revolution.

Made for Napoleon circa 1806, this flintlock was presented by Jean-Baptiste Gribeauval. Elements of the heraldic coat of arms form the engraving details for this piece.
