George Washington owned a pair which he bequeathed to General Lafayette and it is thought that the first shot fired in the American Revolution came from a Doune pistol.

Pook & Pook’s November 17 sale of firearms and militaria in Downingtown, Pennsylvania, contains a matched pair of these Scottish pistols: 18th century flintlocks signed by John Campbell, a member of the Doune guild of gunsmiths.

They are typical examples constructed entirely from steel.

The estimate is $20,000-30,000.
