Pistol: British Flintlock
Highly reliable, water resistant and accurate, the British duelling pistol was the highpoint in the mechanical development of the flintlock pistol.
This handsome reproduction piece is made of wood with authentic metal detailing, and a simulated firing mechanism.
Aotearoa New Zealand has its own share of stories involving this piece of British gunsmithing:
Jacky Marmon, famous Pakeha Maori, accompanied Ngapuhi musket raids to the south "...festooned with pistols"; whilst a number of duels were fought on the beach at Kororareka Russell, both before and after Te Tiriti o Waitangi was signed!
