- Pirate Pistol
“Arrgh, matey! Show me yer booty! Nay, yer treasure! Turn around and pull yer pants up, ye fools!”
Those are the kinds of misunderstandings that happen when people start brandishing loaded firearms. People just want to make a person with a gun happy as quickly as possible, and don’t bother to ask for clarification! That’s why this Toy Pirate Pistol Weapon isn’t a weapon––it’s a toy. It’s right there in the name. Okay, “weapon” is in the name too, little confusing, but it definitely does not fire bullets or gunpowder of any kind. And let’s be honest, you probably couldn’t make a gun this old fire anyway. You had to use a stick and a cloth to reload it! That’s why pirates still carried swords. Guns weren’t that great yet. But they definitely looked cool!
This Toy Pirate Pistol Weapon is a basic accessory you’ll need for a pirate or any soldier during the early modern era. It’s made of hard polypropylene plastic, molded and painted to resemble an authentic 17th century flintlock pistol. The grip and stock of the 16-inch gun are brown to resemble wood, with gilt detailing for the barrel and trigger. The mouth of the barrel is bell-shaped. Perfect for your Pirates of the Caribbean or Assassin’s Creed-obsessed child, or more creative children who imagine adventures not wholly owned by multimedia conglomerates! And hey, if you order it for yourself, we won’t tell. We won’t even know!
- Meh...it ok...needs some workBy Knight | August 25, 2017It’s meh…. faux pistol. Its hollow plastic and sounds like it if you tap it. I painted the pistol and use matte clear paint to give it a faded look. Also, I cut the flared tip down which was very easy to do with a scissor. This is for Renaissance festival and I will attach it to my pirate purse. From a distance it will give me the look I want.Was this review helpful to you?
