Reproduction of a flintlock gun made of metal and wood with a loading and firing simulator mechanism.
The flintlock guns had a flint or flint stone, which, when the hammer was operated, produced the spark that lit the gunpowder. All these guns required manual reloading of their ammunition after each shot. The ammunition, which was introduced through the mouth of the cannon, consisted of gunpowder, projectile and paper block, which served as a stopper to keep the previous two compressed inside the barrel.
These guns were used as self-defense weapons until the mid-19th century. Its effective range was short and they were frequently used as a complement to a sword or knife. Spark guns were prone to many problems compared to modern weapons, due to moisture or accidental firing.
In combat, these weapons were generally used for a single shot, since the reload method was very slow and there was usually no time to reload it. Therefore the fighters after firing were forced to draw their sabers or swords or use the gun as a blackjack, since circumstances did not allow recharging it in time.
