A study is presented of a group of early eighteenth-century militia or military pistols in the Armoury of the Duke of Buccleuch and Queensberry at Boughton House, which includes pistols made by the London maker Andrew Dolep, and two makers from Breda in Holland and other London and Low Countries makers. These particular pistols are unique as they allow the exploration of the Anglo-Dutch/London–Low Countries supply chain to England in this early and significant period. The consistency of these pistols and their components as a group and their production by a number of makers working in different countries perhaps indicates the ability to achieve significant standardization of a complex supply chain and provides insights into the behaviour of the Ordnance or the supply chain to Colonels when arming their regiments with new or refurbished weapons during this early period.
