Italian Triple Barrel Flintlock Non-Firing Replica
This 11 inch Italian Antiqued Metal-Gray Flintlock Pistol Replica featured a unique three-barrel design made by Lorenzoni circa 1680 and carried the Medici Arms seal. This replica gun has simulated engraved ivory grips and engraved and antiqued metal furniture that complete this elaborate and unique piece. This gun also has moving parts. 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 - a great costume or conversation piece.
