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.
