Our exciting range of replica flintlock pistols have been beautifully crafted from high-quality materials. The pistols feature intricate detailing and each has a working mechanism which produces a "click" when the trigger is pulled. These models are replicas designed for display purposes only, they are constructed from a material unsuitable for use in a firearm and cannot chamber or fire ammunition.
Flintlock is a general term for any firearm that uses a flint striking ignition mechanism. The term may also apply to a particular form of the mechanism itself, also known as the true flintlock, that was introduced in the early 17th century, and gradually replaced earlier firearm-ignition technologies, such as the matchlock, the wheellock, and the earlier flintlock mechanisms.
Warning: never carry any ofthe models in public. Offences with replica weapons carry the same penalties as with real weapons.
You must be aged 18 or over to purchase any of the replica pistols.
With the appointment of Nicholas Merbury as master of the King's Ordnance in the early part of the 15th century, the Royal Armouries commenced its role as the standard setter for arms and armour in this country.
This pride and heritage extends to the Royal Armouries products, inspired by our collections and our special place in Britain's history.
