Pistols

Historic pistols

If you require a pistol rather than a long arm our range is rather impressive which includes flintlocks, percussion and wheel-locks. 
Most of our clients already have a good idea what they want and send us pictures, drawings sometimes even a sketch on a piece of paper to show us what they would like. 
As with all our handmade weapons, there is a waiting list for bespoke pieces, but we also have an extensive range of pistols made for us by our Indian manufacturers, some of which are shown below. 
However, if you would like something very special please do get in touch – if we haven’t made it yet, we will welcome the opportunity to work with you to produce something that is both aesthetically pleasing and also functional.
