And once more my heartfelt thanks go to you, Marcus!

Sectioning that weapon among 'miniature weapons' is not tricky but simply wrong as this of course is not a miniature weapon but an absolutely correct and full-size, fine and extremely rare gilt-etched combined wheellock pistol and horseman's hammer, Nuremberg, ca. 1550-55 (Czerny's labeled it as 'late 16th c.')!

Best,
Michael
