They made a lot of guns but also produced some very high quality pieces. They provided a lot of semi-finished and finished guns to nearly everyone in the trade. William Scott set up shop in 1834, in 1897 he joined with P. Webley & Son and basically made guns until 1979 and then it again became W & C Scott. In 1985 Holland & Holland acquired the name and I believe the last Scott made was in 1991.
