Good morning Shayde,

I don't see why not. an awful lot of horse harness was cast into waters as votive offerings, so don't think a sword and scabbard would be out of place.
Mind, some weapons were...

Hi Rick,

It looks Viking Age to me.

Very nice musket Markku.

It appears in good order, and yes, the dog catch and rear sight are hall -marks of these muskets, and Swedish arms of that period in general.

Dear Fernando,

Yes indeed you may well be right on this.

Good morning Andi,

I am No expert, but first thoughts say a swivel gun from a ship.
The condition says it was in salt water for a long time too.

Very interesting find!

Rick,

The stock carving of the gun in the O.P. also say India, rather than Afghanistan. (On underside ahead of the breech.)

Hi Rick,

Snaplock,

It appears we share similar interests. :)
