The detached barrel ca. 1400 to early 15th century, the iron tiller gonne ca. 1440-50.

Ah Ah,
That sexy one in the top left is not a so distant family member of my (Aljubarrota?) example.

Looks very good! What is the caliber and length of this barrels?

Exactly, Fernando,:)

But while our Aljubarrota barrels are still of the Romanesque rounded form, this one has yet adapted the octagonal Gothic style and should, in my opinion, be correctly dated ca. 1400 to early 15th century - just like the Berne gun.
