AR221013L: Replica 1825 Italian Percussion Pistol, Brass

Percussion pistols were a technological upgrade from the flintlock pistol in that they use shock-sensitive explosives such as fulminate or mercury to fire the round rather than relying on the spark from flint striking the pan. This makes them far more reliable in wet conditions than their predecessors.
