African Percussion Breast Pistol, Unique, £80.00
A North African percussion gun in the 'breast pistol' (stocked) style. Carved stock, long narrow barrel. Missing a lock retaining screw, the mainspring is held in place weakly and the sear spring is a little seized (it can cock but is reluctant). ONE PICTURE SHOWS IT WITHOUT THE LOCK BUT THE LOCK IS INCLUDED IN THE SALE. It happened to be out for inspection when I took the photos. A photo with the lock fitted, and also a photo with the lock disassembled are also listed if you scroll through the pictures. The lock will come assembled, but parts will separate if not handled correctly. Beautiful wallhangar or interesting project.
Indian Torador Matchlock .55 Calibre Musket, £95.00
Long but light, with fully working action, moving pan cover, decent wood condition. The barrel is 41 inches with a lovely patina, 4 barrel bands over a multiple-piece stock. Some cracking which does not affect handling. The pan itself is a little rusty and would need a clean before hypothetical firing, and the ramrod is a bit stuck. That said, this is in good condition considering it's age and humid origins. Light, long and a pleasure to handle.
Medieval Handcannon (15th Century, German/Austrian).
Not much to say, see the pictures! A big metal tube with a touch-hole. Half a millennium old!
The FN1900 has been SOLD. More details on this and all my other sold items can be found archived on my website thehistoryshop.co.uk
