Hi Kubur,
If you refer to the original question by Eftihis, he is asking where this gun ORIGINATES. It may have Tunisian decoration but that does not answer his question.
The lock on the subject gun...

I do not believe that this gun is Tunisian or in fact North African. The "boxy" butt profile IMHO is all wrong for that region.

Hi Ken,
When you receive it, check to see if there is a fixing point for a shoulder stock. I suspect that if there is one, it will be what is loosely called a Poachers Gun. Not likely to be a cane or...

Hi Jim, The Shotel sword is mentioned in Wiki here https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shotel but does not give a concise origin of the word.

Hi Jim,
I believe that the term SHOTEL to which you refer to is not in fact the correct description to the subject sword (with the horn/rhino hilt). The correct term for this particular blade shape...

Nice lot of pics on the thread now, but description of the shaft of ARABIAN spears states the shaft is (usually) bamboo. Many of those shown appear to to be of some other wood (not that it means they...

Hi Norman,
In the 4th pic from the top, is that something written/impressed into the centre of the side plate, or is it just the way the light is playing on the surface? Looks like 3 impressions.

Hi Colin,
Interesting items indeed. Are you able to provide provenance linking these firmly to Arabia?
There is a short chapter in Elgoods's Arms and Armour of Arabia dealing with Lances and Spears,...

The bore on Kubur's gun looks to be rifled judging by the pic of the muzzle. As an aside, that restored one of mine has an absolutely pristine rifled bore. I had not (until yesterday) scrubbed it out...

Hi Kubur,
Very nice Sindhi and I love the MOP decoration. Yes I agree you need to get the repairs done as it will improve matters considerably. The damage does not look too bad and IMHO with careful...

Hi Jim,
I also have seen The Water Diviner....a very sobering subject, and IMHO a very well done movie, showing the horror of Galipoli.

Well done.......cleaning of the silverwork will work wonders I think. Also I note that the trigger is missing...........
IMHO potentially a very attractive piece with a bit of TLC.

Hi Will,
The barrel is very thick wall so probably COULD be fired (with caution), however I do not intend to try.

Hi Markku,
Despite the fact that it is probably an "eastern" pistol, rather than French/Belgian, IMHO it is still a nice and interesting piece.
