          This is a replica of a French 1822 Pattern flintlock pistol that was converted to percussion using the Belgian method. In this style, the nipple screws into a swaged out area on the top of the barrel. Right side
          By the early 19th century, the French were making their pistols more rugged by linking as much of the furniture together as possible. Note that the sideplate is linked to the barrel band. Left side
          There is a steel backstrap that links the barrel tang to the buttcap. Even though this is a smoothbore, there is a front and rear sight. Breech from above
          The brass triggerguard mounts to a long steel trigger plate. There is a large lanyard loop on the buttcap. Triggerguard
          When the original guns were converted to percussion, they also got new rammers with a built in powder measure. Yes, the rammer is in at an angle, this is to allow it to clear the triggerguard. The French were on the cutting edge of firearm technology at this time and were not afraid to think outside of the box. Rammer
