We now carry a full line of flintlock pistols, percussions pistols and blunderbuss pistols. These flintlock pistols are safe and are non-firing. Flintlock pistols, percussions pistols and blunderbuss pistols are great for stage props, theaters, or collectible pieces. Flintlock is a general term for any firearm based on the flintlock mechanism. Introduced about 1630, the flintlock rapidly replaced earlier firearm-ignition technologies, such as the matchlock and wheellock mechanisms. It continued to be in common use for over two centuries, replaced by percussion cap and, later, cartridge-based systems in the early-to-mid 19th century. The Model 1840 U.S. musket was the last flintlock firearm produced for the U.S. military although there is evidence obsolete flintlocks were seeing action in the earliest days of the American Civil War.
