C1840 Irish Mc Dermot Dublin 40 Bore Percussion Overcoat Pistol With Silver Stock Mounts & Damascus Barrel. Sn 12756 - 12756

The Irish Gunmakers Farrell & Henry Mc Dermott / Mc Dermot were two prolific makers of pistols in Dublin and are recorded at 1 Abbey Street Dublin in the early to Mid 1800’s. Their guns appear with both spellings "Mc Dermott" or "Mc Dermot". The relevance of the different spellings and the connection between these two gunmakers has yet to be established (they were originally listed by M.S. Dudley Westropp, MRIA, Journal Arms & Armour Society, 1957 Vol.11. No 1). This is an excellent percussion pistol by Mc Dermot, Dublin. It has an undamaged walnut full stock with chequered pistol grip and inlaid silver escutcheon. It has steel furniture and silver stock mounts,. The trigger guard with pineapple finial and hammer have foliate engraved decoration. The action has a sliding safety bolt feature. The action plate is signed ‘Mc Dermot’. It measures 8 ½” overall length and has a 4 ½” Damascus barrel grooved for sighting and small blade fore sight. The sighting groove is marked ‘Dublin’. The action tang and muzzle edge have foliate engraved decoration. The pistol’s smooth bore is clean. The pistol has its original wood ram rod with brass end cap. It’s cocking and firing actions work as they should. The price for this Irish overcoat pistol by prolific Dublin gunsmiths worthy of further research includes UK delivery. NB As an antique percussion pistol no licence is required to own this item in the UK if retained as part of a private collection or display. Sn 12756
