Gardone, Italy’s Davide Pedersoli is shipping the new Alaskan variant of their double-triggered Howdah pistol to the states.

Imported through the Italian Firearms Group, Pedersoli’s new Howdah Alaskan 45/410 is billed as “perfect for home defense and as a truck gun, and it’s just the thing to clear out pesky snakes and varmints.”

The breech-loading break-action double-barreled (SXS) pistol is a modern take on the Prohibition-era Ithaca Auto & Burglar 20-gauge shorty shotgun. While the legacy gun eventually ran afoul of the National Firearms Act, the new Howdah variant is chambered in .45 Colt with chambers long enough to support 3-inch .410 shells.

The break-action handgun features a pair of 10.25-inch six-groove barrels rifled with a 1-in-48-inch RH twist. The rifled barrels keeping the gun out of NFA territory, thus making the Howdah legal for importation and purchase in the U.S. without a tax stamp or additional red tape. Overall length is 17.25-inches and the weight comes in at 4 pounds.

Pedersoli previously announced the Howdah pistol in 2017 with walnut furniture and a case colored steel receiver. The new Alaskan variant swaps that out with hard chrome and rubber overmolded wood to resist the elements.

MSRP is $1,350.
