PEDERSOLI S.355 "An.IX Flintlock Model"

PEDERSOLI S.355

FOLLOWING TEXT FROM: OFFICIAL PEDERSOLI WEBSITE Famous cavalry pistol of the Napoleon period, inspired by the previous Model 1763-66. This pistol has a shorter barrel, the hand grip shape has been varied and the crafted lock system of the An IX musket was adopted in its scale down version. From 1803 to 1807 about 33.000 pistols “pair” have been produced, all of them used during the Empire military battles. Our reproduction, like the original model, features brass garnitures: the long front band, the trigger guard and the butt cap. --TECHNICAL SPECS-- CALIBER: 17,5mm CAPACITY: Single-shot, muzzle-loading OPERATION: Flintlock OVERALL LENGTH: 35 centimetres (13 3/4 inches) BARREL LENGTH: 21 centimetres (8 1/4 inches) WEIGHT: 1,35 Kilograms (2,98 lbs) --MANUFACTURER CONTACT INFO-- Davide Pedersoli & C. - Muzzleloading and cartridge replica firearms Via Artigiani, 57 25063 Gardone Val Trompia (BS) - Italy Tel.: +39 030 8915000 Fax: +39 030 8911019 URL: http://www.davide-pedersoli.com OTHER PICTURE (hi-res): http://www.davide-pedersoli.com/img/Arms/S.355.jpg
