Quality 1806-1849 Flintlock Pocket Pistols With .47" Calibre Screw Off Barrels, Birmingham Proof Marks & Unusual Sliding Safety Catches By McLauchlan, Edinburgh, Scotland. Sn 8877 - 8877
William McLauchlan was a Scottish Gunamker with premises first recorded in 1806 at 8 Lothian Street, Edinburgh. Between 1806 & 1849 he is also recorded as having premises at other Edinburgh addresses in Nicholson Street, Home Street and Morrison Place. This is a fine pair of flintlock pocket pistols by McLauchlan. They are 6 1/2 inches overall with 1 3/4", .47" Bore screw off barrels which have Birmingham proof marks. On the left side they are engraved 'McLauchlan' and the right 'Edinburgh' within Arms & Banners designs. Both trigger guards are engraved with stylised 'Star' designs and both hammers are fitted with flints. Both pistols have unusual sliding safety catches. The sliding safety bars have pin ends. The pin when pushed forward not only locks the hammer but also enters a purpose made hole in the pan lid which keeps the lid securely closed preventing exposure of gunpowder in the pan & accidental ignition or loss of the gunpowder. Many pistols with this type of safety catch are broken by owners, unaware of the feature, forcing the pan open and breaking the safety pin. The safety catches and firing actions of both these pistols are complete & work as they should. Their bag shaped wood grips are excellent & undamaged. The price for this matching pair of pistols includes UK delivery. NB As antique flintlock pistols no licence is required to possess them in the UK if retained as a part of a collection or display.
