Howdah Hunter

Howdah Hunter

Classic pistol with side by side barrels reproducing the Anglo-Saxon guns’ style used for the hunt in the second half of the Eighteen hundreds in the far colonial territories and India. During the first period of the British colonial government in India, the Howdah pistols for their power and reliability were preferred by the officers of the English army in the far away outposts of the wide empire, but the main use was at close range to stop dangerous wild animals such as the tiger which were known to leap upon the Howdah atop the elephants back. The Howdah name is the palanquin mounted on the elephant. The locks are embellished with engravingfeaturing wild animals in their natural habitat, case hardened color finish. The walnut pistol grip stock has two checkered sections to grant a firm, comfortable and stable grip, thanks to the counterweight butt plate.
