ITALIAN COLONIAL 3 BARREL FLINTLOCK PISTOLNobleWares Image of 1680 Italian 3 Barrel Flintlock non-firing replica Pistol model 1016G by Denix of Spain 1016G by DENIX
The original of this unique triple barrel flintlock pistol was made by Lorenzi in Italy in about 1680 and the engraved coat of arms is that of the famous Medici family. The barrels rotate on a central axis allowing the relatively quick alignment of multiple readied barrels to a single flint. This non-firing replica version is accurately detailed with all of the features of the expensive originals, including a beautifully engraved simulated ivory stock with equally ornate antique grey butt cap, frizzen, lock plate, trigger guard and stock furniture. Rotate the frizzen, cock the hammer, and pull the trigger – the hammer falls just as it did for those who fired them in America's early colonial history more than 300 years ago.

  "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!"
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.
