AR221063: Replica 1806 French Napoleon Flintlock Pistol

Denix

This reproduction of Napoleon's flintlock pistol is made of metal and wood with a simulated mechanism of loading and firing. This pistol is reproduced with museum-quality detail and is a great choice for any discerning collector. This pistol design was first created for Napoleon by his arms manufacturer Jean-Baptiste Gribeauval in St. Etienne in 1806 and has the Emperor's badge on the handle.

Flintlock pistols, one of the most commonly used self-defense firearms until the middle of the 19th century, had a flint or flint stone, which when triggered by the hammer produced the spark that ignited the gunpowder. All of these guns required ammo to be loaded manually after each shot. The ammunition, which was introduced through the mouth of the barrel, consisted of gunpowder, a projectile and a paper wad, which served as a cap to keep the two previous materials compressed inside the barrel.

These weapons were generally used for a single shot during combat since the method of reloading was very slow and there was not usually time to reload. Therefore, the fighters were forced to draw their sabers or swords or to use the pistol as a bludgeon if they could not reload in time.
