      Smile Single-Shot Dueling Pistols

      I know that almost all single-shot pistols are used for hunting and target shooting. But in the past duels were sometimes fought with Single-Shot muzzle loading pistols.

      But I think it would just be cool to have two custom made breech loading single-shot pistols for historical purposes.

      What are some of the best quality made single-shot breech loading pistols out there?

      I'm not much of an authority on black powder pistols, however I think that you can get a pair of Hawken reproductions from Cabela's.

      When I think quality breech-loading single-shot pistols I think of Thompson Center's Encore pistols.

      They're not blackpowder or historical though.

      For blackpowder firearms I'd look at: http://www.dixiegunworks.com/

      More specifically: http://www.dixiegunworks.com/default...=22_92_187_188

      You could get two of the Harper's Ferry Pistol Reproductions. Combine them and you have the MP Corps Insignia.

      Cartridge Duellers

      For an "Old Fashioned" look, try Uberti's Remington Rolling Block reproductions, if you can use .22 rf. I think these were made, or another maker, in .357 Magnum. You could probably locate a pair from somebody like Dixie Gun Works.

      And, of course, the Thompson Contender, as has been mentioned.
