Italian Flintlock Dueling Non-Firing Set
Originally the 1825 Italian Percussion Flintlock Dueling Pistol Set was manufactured in Brescia circa 1825. These 15 inch handsome dueling pistols are a testament to those bygone days when men defended their honor by dueling. The non-firing replica dueling guns feature a wood stock and an elaborate engraved lock and butt cap, as well as moving parts. The 1825 Italian Percussion Flintlock Dueling Pistol Set are presented in a cardboard box depicting a dueling scene. 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 of this pistol was made in Brescia, Italy in about 1825. This non-firing version is accurately detailed and shows typical Italian craftsmanship great costume or conversation piece. Length: 15" Weight: 1.5 Lbs Sold as a set of 2 pistols.
