Hi Estcrh.
That is the most common style miquelet lock I see on Balkan made guns. Except for the size for long gun or pistol, the locks all seem to be designed almost identical. Notice the pic you...

Even with the more extended drop to the butt stock, I believe this one is in fact Caucasian. The style of barrel bands, the unguarded button trigger, and the different wood/horn section at the butt...

Yes, the break in the forearm would be worth repairing. And the lock may need some work while at it. My gunsmith would be great for this, but he is down with medical issues at the moment. And lives...

While on this subject, this might be a good time to pose a question about these Teppo's that is still a mystery to me. That being the design of the front and rear sights. Especially the rear.

Black powder used in some areas of the sub Sahara is "home made" and of large grain size, requiring more than what we in the "west" are used to charge a gun. That could be the reason that the flask...

Also, I've never seen one of this style that was NOT very large. I've always wanted one in a madium to smaller size, but never able to locate one. One about 9-10 inches long.
