Item Description

The 1825 Brass Italian Caplock / Percussion Pistol Replica! This 15.5 inch brass Italian (Brescia) 1825 percussion Dueling Pistol is a handsome testament to bygone days when men defended their honor by dueling. This replica gun features a detailed simulated brass engraved barrel and furniture.The Caplock or Percussion Lock pistols were so called because the lock system causes a percussion cap to be struck by the hammer when the trigger is pulled. Powder inside the cap ignites and this in turn ignites the main powder charge, which propels a lead ball from the barrel. Most (though not all) caplock firearms were loaded from the muzzle of the gun (muzzleloaders). The Caplock was a great improvement over the flintlock as it was less susceptible to weather-related misfires. The original Italian version of this caplock / percussion pistol was made in Brescia, Italy in about 1825. This non-firing version is accurately detailed and shows typical Italian craftsmanship & is a great costume accent or conversation piece. The Brass 1825 Italian Percussion Pistol has an Overall Length: 15" Weight: 1 lb 2oz Barrell Length: 9"
