When Captain Jack Sparrow is marooned on a desert island by his mutinous first mate, Barbossa, he's left with a flintlock pistol with only one shot left. But by the thrilling climax of Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl, the shot's still there and Barbossa finds himself looking down the barrel of Jack's pistol, hoping the powder's wet!
In the "Golden Age" of piracy, no self-respecting buccaneer went anywhere without his flintlock. The forerunners of modern gun technology, these guns were developed in the early 1600s and remained in use for nearly 300 years. The technology is simple. The lock-- the method for exploding the charge-- is made of flint. When struck against a piece of steel (the "frizzen"), the flint creates sparks which explode the gunpowder packed in the barrel, propelling a lead ball at the targetâ€¦ in this case, Jack's ghostly adversary.
For filming, Captain Jack Sparrow's flintlock was built according to exact historical models and specifications. Master Replicas is proud to offer this hero prop, recreated with painstaking care.
