The original of this side-by-side double-barreled flintlock pistol is from Napoleons private armory and bears his insignia on both sides of the grip. Made by Gribeauval, Napoleons personal gun maker, the pistol originated in the French gun making center of St. Etienne in 1806. Unusual for its day, the double-barrel configuration provided a decided advantage over its single-barreled counterpart, given the notoriously slow reloading procedure for flintlocks.
Please note that this replica firearm is completely decorative. While it has moving parts, it cannot be made to fire live ammo and should not be excessively dry-fired.
