What Is A Black Powder Pistol?
A black powder pistol is one that requires you to manually load it down the muzzle with primer, powder, wad, and shot. These pistols aren’t for everyone, but enthusiasts find these handguns to be exemplary, if only for the skill necessary to successfully use one.
While original pistols are available, it’s more fiscally responsible to buy a reproduction, such as a mid-1800s revolver or a 1700s percussion.
These pistols do require more care and maintenance than modern handguns. With that care, however, comes exceptional reliability.
Examples Of Black Powder Handguns
The Trapper Traditions 50 Percussion is a classy piece that could have been used by the mountain men. This pistol is heavy at nearly three pounds, but very reliable, just as it would have been in the early 1800s. It has an octagonal blued steel barrel 9.75 inches long and a hardwood stock.
The NAA Companion 1860 Earl is a mini revolver, weighing in at 9.2 ounces and has a four-inch barrel. It is a .22 cap and ball pistol and resembles a 150-year-old revolver of the Wild West. It has a wooden stock, stainless finish, and an octagonal barrel.
The Lyman Plains Pistol is a recreation of the pistols used by trappers in the late 1700 and early 1800s. It has an overall length of fifteen inches, nine of which are just the barrel. The barrel is octagonal, blued, and paired with a walnut stock for that authentic look and feel.
