SOLD SOLD SOLD C1860 Victorian English Double Damascus Barelled 14 Bore Percussion ‘Howdah’ Pistol. Sn 14040 - 14040
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 an excellent, original, percussion double barrel Howdah pistol. The pistol is English in form but has no visible manufacturer marks. Its side by side finely figured Damascus barrels are 7 ¾” in length and are 17.70mm muzzle diameter which is approx. 14 Bore. It measures 14” overall length. The smooth bores are clean. It has a broad top rib and small brass bead fore sight. It is complete with its original wood ram rod with brass end caps which sits inside the weapon's walnut full wood stock which has chequered panels at the grip and inlaid void German silver disc on top of the wrist .
