Italian Triple Barrel Brass Flintlock Non-Firing
The Italian Triple Action Brass Flintlock Pistol Replica 1860! This 11 inch Three Barrel Flintlock Pistol Replica with Medici Arms Seal 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 ll very time consuming! Often the priming charge would burn but fail to ignite the main charge hence the expression flash in the pan! The original of this particular flintlock pistol was made by Lorenzi in Italy in about 1680 and the engraved coat of arms is that of the famous Medici family. This non-firing version is accurately detailed along with working parts - a great costume or conversation piece.
