Working Flintlock Pistols...

...seem difficult to come by. If I Google it, I recieve a slew of non-working replica sites offering flintlock pistols but nothing in the realm of the working. Are these guns really that hard to come across? I've seen ads for antiques ranging in the $2,000 - $3,000 range (US) and this is NOT what I'm looking for. I want something I can use, made of modern materials that at least looks somewhat period. Any advice?

Jake.

Pirates are "in" since those pirate flicks hit the screen.

My buddy, a deputy sheriff, laughs at the idea of shooting a home burglar with a flintlock and imagines the shot burglar's lament, "He shot me with a pirate pistol!"
