"Caplock" or "Percussion Lock" pistols were so called because the lock system causes a percussion cap to be struck by the hammer when the trigger is pulled. Powder inside the cap ignites and this in turn ignites the main powder charge, which propels a lead ball from the barrel. Most (though not all) caplock firearms were loaded from the muzzle of the gun (muzzleloaders). The Caplock was a great improvement over the flintlock as it was less susceptible to weather-related misfires. The original of this pistol was made in Brescia, Italy in about 1825. This Non Firing version of an Italian Percussion Pistol circa 1825 is accurately detailed and shows typical Italian craftsmanship - a great costume or conversation piece.
