Summary: The description, specs and photos of the Pedersoli An IX pistol.
Pedersoli’s An IX is a small muzzle-loading pistol that reproduces a famous cavalry pistol of the Napoleon period, inspired by the previous model 1763–66. This pistol has a shorter barrel, the hand grip shape has been varied and the crafted lock system of the An IX musket was adopted in its scaled-down version. From 1803–1807, roughly about 33,000 pistols pairs were produced, all of them used during the Empire military battles.
Pedersoli’s reproduction, like the original model, features brass garnitures, including the long front band, the trigger guard and the butt cap.
