Flintlock guns, one of the most used firearms in the eighteenth century. Flintlock pistols had a flint stone which, when activated, produced a spark that ignited the gunpowder.

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 supplement to a sword or knife. Spark guns were prone to many problems compared to modern guns, due to moisture or accidental hits.

In combat, these weapons were usually used for a single shot, as the reloading method was very slow, and there was usually no time to reload. Therefore, the fighters were forced to draw their sabers or swords or use the pistol as a club after firing, since the circumstances did not allow it to be reloaded in time.
