The American Flintlock Pistol

circa 1775-1815
Model PK-1

Historically, this pistol could have been made anywhere in the Colonies or eastern states during the last quarter of the 18th century or the first few years of the 19th century.

The 13" long swamped barrel gives the pistol a long, graceful appearance. The additional length also makes it practical (and legal) as a choice for deer or turkey hunting in those states that have approved flintlock pistols. For those states that require an actual bore length of 12 inches, our 13" barrel gives you ½ inch to spare.

Some of the more successful pistol competitors at the national shoots have examined the pistol and found the stock architecture enables one to lock-in a good grip for serious target work. The longer sight radius is an added advantage, especially at longer distances.
