This is an amazing replica of the Kentucky Pistol from the USA in the 19th Century, it has been made from wood and metal. The Kentucky Pistol was a classic American weapon for the early explorers, used in the American Revolutionary War (1775-1783) and in the American Civil War (1861-1865). Often it was accompanied with a rifle of the same caliber, allowing the user to shoot the same ball of lead. The flintlock pistols had the blistering of a flint or flint stone, which when the hammer was triggered, it produced the spark that ignited the gun powder. All these pistols required the manual recharge of their ammunition after each shot. In combat, usually these weapons were used for a single shot, since the method of reloading was very slow and it was not usually time enough to recharge.
