Scottish Flintlock Pocket Pistol
Turn-off barrel, and top tang sliding safety catch. The pistol has a 21/2” turn-off barrel of approx 0.42” calibre, is 71/4” overall and in lovely condition. Crisp Proof Marks This pistol was made between 1818 and 1825. The action has a strong spring, holds well at half- and full-cock and with the safety catch engaging securely at half-cock. Nice strong spark on firing. The woodwork is in excellent condition. Visible screw heads are not ‘gouged’, broken or deformed as is so often the case. The l/h side of the action is engraved ‘Gourlays’ over banners and flags and the other side banners, flags and shield. The trigger guard has a star-burst and Proof Marks are clear at the front lower area of the action. Charles Gourlay is recorded as a gun-maker at 115 Nelson St Glasgow in 1818 and was joined by his brother John in 1822 at this address and subsequently 88 Argyle St in 1825. This is a fine example of a flintlock pocket pistol from the early 19th century from a recorded but rarely encountered Scottish gun-maker.
