Mendi Replica Spanish Pistol

This is a picture of a Mendi Replica Spanish Pistol. She has a 10 inch barrel and is .36 Cal. Mendi of course went out of business years ago.

I was told when I bought her recently that she took a #11 Cap and uses a .380 round lead ball. Recently I was told that she needs a .350 ball, with a lubed .010 or .015 patch.

Made in Spain Mendi

12119 Then [12 + M _ M]

Any information you can provide, such as links, ect. would be appreciated.

You need to try to determine the actual land to land diameter by measuring with calipers.
There's ways to do that if the lands aren't directly across from each other including by slugging it.
It can also be closely estimated by fitting a tight piece of rod or wood dowel into the muzzle. Or just use the trial and error method of loading different size balls and patch thicknesses that a person can gather or may have on hand.

Measured 0.38 inches with calipers. I bought a new one at Lowes.

Explains a lot.
