18th Century - American Revolution - Pirates and Privateers
Pistol patterns in the 18th century were only limited by the imagination of the gunsmith. One was the double barreled shotgun type pistol used by civilians, sailors, pirates, privateers, traders, or purchased by military officers as a personal defence piece. This and similar designs were used from the early 18th century to about the 1830s. This item was for close quarter action.

The barrels are 6 3/4 inches long and .58 calibre and the pistol's overall length is 13 3/8 inches. The bore of the barrels is cylinder and made of polished high-carbon steel (type:BS970 no.080M40- auto industry foundry) and the breeches are threaded.
The lock is made with strong durable springs and has a case-hardened frizzens that throws good sparks. We use a industrial case-hardening factory process that makes sparking both more reliable and longer lasting. Presently no other musket provider uses this technique.
As with all our other flintlocks, the vent is not drilled (read details below) so we can ship easily to our door throughout North America and to Europe and the UK. Aside from that they are exactly like the originals. A fine addition to any collection.

We are not legally responsible for any alteration from its present non-firing state. Please read our Conditions of Use and Legal Disclaimer.
