Product Details

Scotland’s Highland warriors carried an array of distinctive fighting tools – the dirk, claymore broadsword, the hidden “black knife” or skean dubh, and, for the fortunate officer, a pistol from the renowned gunsmith guild of Doune, Perthshire. This classic example of a Doune pistol is constructed entirely out of steel as Scottish wood was generally unsuitable for firearms. It is engraved with Celtic geometric and foliate ornamentation. This pistol has a trigger guard although many did not. The village of Doune was known for the manufacture of high quality firearms in the 17th and 18th centuries but after the Battle of Culloden in 1746 and the subsequent Disarming Act – which banned Scots from carrying weapons – the town’s gun smithing industry ceased to exist.

Scale 1:30 / 60mm
