 These 1825 Italian percussion duelling pistols come as a set which includes the card display box and two pistols.
“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 (muzzle loaders). The Caplock was a great improvement over the flintlock as it was less susceptible to weather-related misfires. The original of this pistol was made in Brescia, Italy in about 1825. This non-firing version is accurately detailed and shows typical Italian craftsmanship – a great costume or conversation piece.

This is beautiful non-firing replica pistol with fully working mechanisms.
