Flintlock pistols were one of the main weapons of pirates.
Piracy is a robbery committed at sea, or sometimes on the shore, without a commission from a sovereign nation
In the popular modern imagination, pirates of the classical period were rebellious, clever teams who operated outside the restricting bureaucracy of modern life. In reality, many pirates ate poorly, did not become fabulously wealthy.
Perfect for re-enactments, costumes, theatrical presentations or for collectors.
The flintlock mechanism was in main use for both military and civilian use for over 200 years. Not until the Reverend Alexander John Forsyth invented the rudimentary percussion cap system in 1807 did the flintlock system begin to decline in popularity. The percussion-cap system replaced the flintlock's flint and flashpan with a waterproof copper cap that created a spark when struck.
