This pistol is a replica of an18th century European 'blunderbuss' flintlock pistols.
Beautifully crafted from wood, with barrel and forniments in burnished cast metal, this replica 17th century 'blunderbuss' flintlock pistol embodies quality and attention to detail.
As well as a flared muzzle to spread its shot, this version is extensively decorated, with a butt-cap that resembles those of late 18th century British military pistols.
At 37 cm in length this is a life sized reproduction piece that feels reassuringly weighty to hold.
The zinc-alloy used in this 18th Century European 'blunderbuss' flintlock pistol replica is softer than the steel and brass that the barrel and lock components would have originally been forged in.
Although this European 18th century flintlock pistol has been made from materials that are unsuitable for use in real firearms, the firing mechanism does work and the pistol makes a satisfying “clink" when the trigger is pulled.
With it working firing mechanism this reproduction pistol would make an ideal prop for stage and TV performances.

Is it possible to put orange tips in for use in public for a convention?
There's no requirement for orange muzzles in the UK, and no legal restriction on realistic imitation firearms of a pre-1870 design. Whilst anything resembling a firearm might be deemed a realistic imitation firearm by police if carried in public without good reason, we can't see why a convention or other event wouldn't qualify as good reason. As this should be taking place on private property for one thing, and participants will have a) costumes and b) tickets for the event, demonstrating said good reason.
