Very nice. I assume it is yours? I would think Sindi in origin, and used as a "wall gun".

Don't think this is particularly Afghan. More Arabic IMHO.

Another nice piece Rick. I would look good alongside my other Indian items!! Seems the stocks on these had a rather weak spot judging by the number that have had wrist repairs. What is overall length...

The top part of the stock, where the "hammer" comes thru, is a separate piece of wood. The strap hold this in place, but the size of it seems a bit of overkill to me. Maybe there is something here...

The left hand one is Indo Arab in my opinion and probably from Yemen. The others I will pass on, but I am not sure about the "TUFEK" label...........Shape looks wrong to me.

Hi Rick,

Hi Iain,
I don't often browse here but just came across this post. The idea is great and it would equally suit pistols, daggers and long guns. What is internal dimension of these cases?
