FH1040 Murdock Scottish Highlanders Pistol Reviews
Product: FH1040 Murdock Scottish Highlanders Pistol FH1040 Murdock Scottish Highlanders Pistol
From: Scott Shortridge
Date: Monday 26 December, 2016

At first look it is an impressive pistol. Unfortunately the devil is in the details. Upon first handling found many sharp edges with the lock plate poorly fitted. The hammer and frizzen were not aligned so the flint could not be trued. Consequently, few sparks when the hammer fell. The trigger pull was about 10 to 15 pounds. Disassembled the pistol without too much difficulty. Discovered the frame made of .80 sheet steel rolled then welded together. The pistol grip is hollow. Apparently dull drills and taps were used throughout with much flashing left around the holes. Only the visible parts are polished with everything else left in the rough. The stamping on the barrel indicated my pistol was manufactured in 2011. The hidden corrosion (inside the frame, inside the rams horns) indicated this was probably correct. When the lock plate was removed the entire inside of the frame was powdered with metal shavings. This pistol, at best, is a wall hanger. The barrel might survive being fired but it wouldn't take much for the welds to fail in the frame. If I hadn't taken it apart and attempted some repairs I would return it. It is not worth even half of the asking price.
