C1860 Victorian English John William Edge Manchester Double Barrelled .500 Calibre Percussion ‘Howdah’ Pistol With Captive Steel Ram Rod. Sn 15844 - 15844
John William Edge was an English Gunsmith recorded in Manchester between 1827 & 1864 (see page 95 of English Gunmakers by De Witt Bailey & Nie). The Howdah pistol was a large-calibre handgun, often with two or four barrels, used in India and Africa from the beginning of the nineteenth century and into the early twentieth century, during the period of British Colonial rule. It was typically intended for defence against Tigers, Lions, and other dangerous animals that might be encountered in remote areas. The term "howdah pistol" comes from the howdah, a large platform mounted on the back of an Elephant. Hunters, especially during the period of the British Raj in India, used Howdahs as a platform for hunting wild animals and needed large-calibre side-arms for protection from animal attacks at close quarters. The earliest Howdah pistols were flintlock designs, and it was not until about 60 years later percussion models in single or double barrel configuration were seen. Even though Howdah pistols were designed for emergency defence from dangerous animals in Africa and India, British Officers adopted them for personal protection in other far-flung outposts of the British Empire. This is a very good, original, percussion double barrel Howdah pistol by J.W. Edge Manchester. Its side by side steel barrels are 6” in length. It measures 12” overall length. The smooth bores have staining and residue consistent with age & use. It has a broad top rib and small brass bead fore sight. The rib is signed ‘J.W. Edge Manchester. It is complete with its original captive steel ram rod. Its original Walnut full stock has chequered panels at the grip and inlaid void silver escutcheon. It has double triggers and heavy Dolphin hammers. Its action plates and action tang are crisply engraved with foliate design and signed ‘J.W. Edge’. Both barrels have inlaid silver roundels at the breech. The pistol cocks and dry fires perfectly. The price for this large calibre percussion Howdah pistol includes UK delivery.
