SILEX PISTOL (LEFT), FRANCE, 18th CENTURY

Item: 1127 G

Tijdperk: XVI - XIX

DETAILS

Playing flintlock pistol with Napoleon shield on the handle, metal and wood simulator loading and firing mechanism.

The spark pistols had a flint or flint stone which, triggered by the hammer, produced the spark that ignited the gunpowder. All of these weapons required manual reloading of their ammunition after each shot. The ammunition, which was inserted through the muzzle of the barrel, consisted of powder, taco shell and paper, which was used to keep the tablets taken the previous two in the barrel.

HISTORY

These pistols were used as self-defense weapons until the middle of the 19th century. Their effective range was short and often used as a complement to a sword or knife. Spark pistols were subject to many problems compared to modern weapons, due to moisture or accidental blows.

In combat, these weapons were usually used for a single shot because the reloading method was very slow and it was usually not time to reload. As a result, fighters after firing were forced to draw their sabres or swords or use the pistol as a blackjack, since circumstances did not allow for reloading in time.

Napoleon I Bonaparte (1769-1821), Emperor of France (1804-1815), consolidated and instituted many of the reforms of the French Revolution. He is considered one of the greatest military geniuses in history, conquering most of Europe. He commanded very successful war campaigns, although with some similar defeats. His aggressive wars of conquest became the largest known military operations to that time in Europe, involving a number of soldiers never seen in armies of the time.
