This one being a local copy could have been made between early 18 o00s and yesterday.

With no inspection or acceptance marks,(That I can see) and the cock and frizzen being a bit "off", and the tumbler not being an EIC type, I think it was maybe re-built on the sub-continent or...

Philip,

The barrels you show are very similar to Michael Tromner's barrell (Matchlock)

Jerry,

Rather than serpentine, I think the fine stuff May be priming powder.

Philip,

If some powder was Very good as Elgood states, plus these barrels often being made with a large powder chamber, this could very well account for them out-ranging the muskets of the period. ...

The 'rest' for the barrel could not be used as such, as the whole apparatus would merely sink down onto the horses neck. Recoil on the...

If this mealed powder was still in use as late as the 19th century, it would certainly account for the narrower powder chamber or choked powder chamber in many Indian and...

Fernando,

Happy New Year!

I wonder about the hook. Should it not be integral with the barrel ?

When you take more photos, I'd love to see the lock work.
