NAPOLEON'S DOUBLE BARREL FLINTLOCK PISTOLNobleWares Image of non-firing replica of Napoleon's 1806 Double Barrel Flintlock Pistol model 1026 by Denix of Spain 1026 by DENIX
The original of this side-by-side double-barreled flintlock pistol is from Napoleon's private armory and bears his insignia on both sides of the grip. Made by Gribeauval, Napoleons personal gun maker, the pistol originated in the French gun making center of St. Etienne in 1806. Unusual for its day, the double-barrel configuration provided a decided advantage over its single-barreled counterpart, given the notoriously slow reloading procedure for flintlocks. Napoleon's Crowned Seal is prominently displayed on the grip's butt-plate making the gun making talents of Gribeauval are readily apparent. This non-firing replica has all of the features of the original, including a full length ornately carved wood stock with antique brass finish dual barrels, frizzens, lock plates, butt plate, triggers and guard, all beautifully detailed and literally fit for an Emperor. Rotate the frizzen, cock the hammers, and pull either trigger – the hammers falls just as they did for Napoleon more than 200 years ago.

  Emperor Napoleon Bonaparte of France was well renowned throughout Europe as an arms enthusiast and frequently presented special pieces selected from his personal collection to friends or those associates that had distinguished themselves in his service.

Made for Napoleon circa 1806, this flintlock was presented by Jean-Baptiste Gribeauval. Elements of the heraldic coat of arms form the engraving details for this piece.
