Duelling pistols are pistols of identical appearance, reliability and accuracy that were used in a classical duel. They were often black powder, single-shot pistols. The dueling pistols were sold in pairs usually in compartmentalized wooden cases along with a powder flask, rods for cleaning and loading, spare flints and a bullet mould. The flintlock pistols had a delay between pulling the trigger and the firing of the bullet. As such dueling pistols tended to have heavy barrels, solid grips and hair triggers. Special care was taken when moulding the bullets so as to ensure that there was no hollow part in them. The loading was also carefully undertaken, therefore it takes 10 rounds to reload. However this time penalty is ignored if it is not reloaded during battle.
