Default Pair of Saxon Wheellockpistols 1591/92

I try to identify the gunmaker who made this pair of pistols. On both barrels are to be found the initials "A K" and a henmark. This mark can be a sign of Suhl what was a that time part of the Saxon territory. In the "Neue Stoeckel" there is listet this monogramm with the henmark but only said that it is a mark of a 1591 wheellockpistol probably of Saxony. That's all. But this I know for myself. Maybe there is somebody here who can help?

it is surprising to discover the number of pairs of pistols of this type. However, I note a great difference of quality between these different examples the most beautiful example found in the MET( first pics)

Cool

Thanks a lot for the many fotos, especially the barrel marks are most interesting. Some of these pistols look like they had been once part of my collection................At least one of the pistols of your fotos shows the same henmark then my pistols do. So these must have been made by the same gunsmith or in the same town.
