18th CENTURY RUSSIAN FLINTLOCK PISTOLNobleWares Image of 18th Century Russian Flintlock non-firing replica Pistol model 1238 by Denix of Spain 1238 by DENIX
This unique 18th Century Flintlock Pistol has an octagonal-to-round blued barrel. This classic replica gun features an elaborately engraved simulated brass receiver and engraved ivory grip and eagle head handle. The original of this particular flintlock pistol was made in Tula, Russia, in the early 18th century and its decoration and finish, as compared with Western European models, is distinctive. This very affordable non-firing replica has all of the features of the expensive originals, including moving parts. 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 250 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.
