    A truly unique and stunning pair of pistols.

    Magnificent Pair of 18th Century All Metal Ram's Horn Butt Scottish F/L Belt Pistols Possibly the finest pair we've ever handled, exhibiting several details we have not previously encountered. Superb overall condition, near mint. 12" overall with 7¾" .55 caliber smoothbore round barrels that are deeply fluted for 2½" at the breech and slightly flared at the muzzles. Barrels, forestocks, and right side of buttstocks covered with profuse scroll engraving. The stocks are fabricated of a brass alloy that is silver plated, with the guns retaining 50% of the original silver. Signed on top of the barrels "MacLeod, Edinburgh". Classic ram's horn butts with vent picks. Hammer faces engraved, with the elaborate cocking spur composed of a scroll and a disc pierced with a five pointed star. 3¾" steel belthooks with gadrooned decoration. Mechanically perfect with absolutely no repair or restoration.
