Pedersoli Howdah Hunter 20-Ga Pistol

Pedersoli Howdah Hunter 20-Ga Pistol is a pistol With twin barrels packing a one-two wallop, this big-bore pistol was fashionable Europeans exploring the vast jungles of India and Burma within the mid-1800s. On a typical excursion, explorers and soldiers were a part of an elephant caravan. Riding on a howdah (the basket perched atop an elephant) may look safe in today’s world, but a century ago danger was real. Tigers could scale the side of a slow-moving elephant within the blink of an eye. To combat surprise attacks, the Howdah-style side-by-side pistol was created. Two cavernous 20-gauge smooth bore barrels are often loaded with buckshot, one slug, “buck and ball”-load common in big-bore muzzle loaders used on dangerous game. Squeeze one among the triggers, and you will appreciate the hand-conforming checkered walnut grip, and therefore, the recoil-soaking end-cap counterweight. Its case-hardened lock plates are engraved with tailed wild animal scenes. Optional shoulder stock also available. Classic pistol with side by side barrels reproducing the Anglo-Saxon guns’ style used for the hunt within the last half of the Eighteen hundreds within the far colonial territories and India.
During the primary period of British colonial government in India, the Howdah pistols for his or her power and reliability were preferred by the officers of the English army within the distant outposts of the wide empire, but the most used was at close range to prevent dangerous wild animals like 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 engraving featuring wild animals within their natural habitat, case-hardened color finish. The walnut stock has two checkered sections to grant a firm, comfortable, and stable grip because of the counterweight butt plate. Similar with cased guns of English tradition, the gun is additionally offered during a mahogany with accessories.

  3. Christopher

    OMG, where do I start lol. I almost returned this puppy out of frustration, but I took it to my Airgun Specialist friend and he discovered that there is a “Hidden Safety”. Needless to say, It works now. I got the chills shooting it the first time.

  4. David Dang

    Great stock. High quality. It fits me and I’m a big guy.

  5. Jerry Sanchez

    Shooting has gotten expensive, even if you can find ammunition to buy. We got these howdah pistol for shooting when we couldn’t get to the range.

  6. Lance Steinberg

    Nice heavy feel, and perfect for backyard target shooting . I have used it several times having “inter family contests” and its great fun .
    Very happy with the purchase, and its a great price for such a well made gun.

  7. Brandon Gregory

    What a great gun !!! I’m a Police Dispatcher for my County and shot off many hand guns , However if I didn’t know that this was a training gun I wouldn’t believe it ! The feel the looks the way it handles at my home range is just amazing !

  9. Jose Campbell

    I have never been a gun owner, because of the intimidation factor. I’m extremely pleased with how comfortable I felt right away. I shot on target instantly, easy to use and load.

  10. Alfonso Edelman

    Very authentic and effective. Shoots great. Very fast and accurate out of the box.

  11. Don Rodriguez

    I’m able to hit fist size groups at about 12 yards in my basement. Opens up a bit outdoors in calm conditions but with any wind over 10mph, all bets are off.

  12. Armando Haider

    I’m no gun enthusiast, but this gun is perfect for all intents and purposes…overall, it’s design makes it possible for just about anyone to learn to use, both quickly and easily… I’d actually say it’s well underpriced for a howdah pistol, with such accuracy and power

  13. Harry Wesner

    I never used any gun before and had a dream to purchase and use it one day. The dream comes true with this Gun. Excellent tool to practice with when I not at a shooting range. Unloaded it is also a good practice weapon for Krav Maga.

  14. James Bartel

    It’s very versatile and can shoot several different types of projectiles. The weight and everything like the blowback feature is amazing.

  15. Kevin Hopkins

  20. Joel APeterson

    This is the most amazing gun I’ve ever owned. It shoots very accurately . I can, fairly consistently, shoot an average bird in the vital area and kill it. Shooting at a 12oz pop can, you would almost never miss. My wife loves it too.
