Historical Background

George Washington owned a pair of brass barrelled pistols similar to this one offered here.  This design was originally made by the London Gunsmith Thomas Ketland in the 1760s.  This style continued into the early 19th century.  

This style of pistol is ideal for those interested the Navy, Pirates and Privateers because the brass barrel is more conducive to service at sea.  The brass also helped if the pistols were stuffed into saddle holsters where humidity from the horse and the elements tended to creep in.

The barrel is 8 inches long and it made of brass with a steel tight breech plug.  On the barrel is the correct "LONDON" marking found on the original.  The pistol's overall length is 14 inches.

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 flintlock muzzleloaders, 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.
