Hi Ward.
Most interesting. Hard to believe some of these items being used this late. But it shows the extent of recycling. Neat belt set.

LOL!!!!! Yet more projects. You may have to have me over to help "rumage" through the piles. On second thought, I can't even get all my projects done :o

Grout. That's the word I was looking for. Yes, I agree. The black filler was probably used exactly as you mention above. Good assessment. Thanks.

Hi Ward.
Another really nice set!! And there's those horn things again. The possible use of those chains as suspenders or shoulder harness is something I never thought of. Yes, that makes sense....

Hi Trench.

Here are pics of the lock and the grey putty fill in. Also interesting, it looks like an old museum tag on the butt stock - with the wrong description. :(

Here is another Jazail from my collection. More decorated than the first one I posted a while back (my shooter). The lock is in perfect working order, just needs a good cleaning. It is the typical...

Hi Trench.
OK. A smoothbore. That makes the "shot" theory a little more plausible as you say. That rams horn flask is probably a seperate priming flask. But I don't think the gun is too contemporary...

Hi Evgeny.
Just when I think I've seen most everything in Ethno firearms, something new pops up. :D

Very sad to hear of Michael's passing. Even though my primary interest is Ethno firearms, I do have a couple of early European pieces. So now, every time I look at my detached, double pawl wheellock...

Hi Stu
An interesting Algerian Kabyle gun. It has the less encountered French style Flintlock vs the more common Toe-Lock Miquelet. In this case it is likely both the lock and barrel were both...
