Lexington Scottish Flintlock boxed set, #27-355
1760 Lexington Flintlock Boxed Set
- On a spring day in 1775, the first shot of the American Revolutionary War--known as "the shot heard 'round the world"--was fired at the Battle of Lexington. Since Scottish officers served with British troops, and many American immigrants were also Scottish, we've chosen this 1760 Scottish flintlock pistol (non-firing replica) to represent that pivotal moment in American history. The pistol replica is intricately detailed and beautifully embossed, with the thistle emblem of Scotland (see close-up photo) on the grip. and now available in a desirable box set presentation. This all-metal replica has moving parts and a belt hook on the left side for securing the pistol to the waistband. Rotate the pan, cock the hammer, pull the trigger, and the hammer falls just as it might have in that small Massachusetts town more than 230 years ago.
