Item Description

The 19th Century French Percussion Dueling Pistol Pewter Replica - French Design 1872! This 14.25 inch antiqued metal gray model gun, based on an 1872 French Percussion cap firing pistol, has elaborate engraving running half way down the barrel from the hammer and a uniquely designed emblem on the grip.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. This non-firing version of the French Percussion Dueling Pistol Replica is accurately detailed and shows typical Italian craftsmanship. The replica a great costume or conversation piece.
