David Scott is listed as a gunmaker in Edinburgh, Scotland, in the early 19th century at least as early as 1805. In the 1830s, he is listed at No. 7 Hay Street.

SCOTT" on the locks and features a bead front sight, silver wedge and wrist escutcheons, a mix of border, floral, martial, and burst engraving; rainproof pans, frizzen spring rollers, and a half-length stock with a smooth forend, checkered wrist, and 14 inch length of pull. Provenance: The Malcolm King Collection

Rating Definition:

Fine with 75% plus of an older rebrowned finish on the barrels, aged patina on the silver, mostly dark brown patina on the balance, patches of mild oxidation and pitting, and general mild overall wear. The refinished stock has mostly crisp checkering, some small chips at the edges, mild dings and scratches, a few filled spots, and a crack to the left of the triggers. Mechanically fine.
