Default Famous handgonne from Tabor

I want to share my photos of one of my favorite handgonnes - famous handgonne from Tabor. Barrel is cylidrical (not conical). Total length is 420 mm. Calibre is 20 mm (Many sites says that calibre is 17-18mm but it is wrong. My own measurements and measurements of Makovskaya says that calibre is 20 mm). I will share my plans of this later I am working on it now.

Oh yes, Alexander,

For freaks like us this is a beauty indeed; for most 'normal' folks out there it would be nothing but a mere crude piece of rusted iron ...

I would like to add that this is one of the very rare little tiller 'pipe' guns (Pfeifenbüchsen) that were very popular in around 1430, during the Czech Hussite Wars.

As I pointed out in an earlier thread this one is about contemporary with the well known but wrongly dated Tannenbergbüchse which by no means is of ca. 1390.

Best,
Michael

Here is our free reconstruction of the Tabor-gonne. It has a barrel length of 410 mm a bore of 270 mm and a calibre of 18 mm. The total length with wooden stock is 192 cm. It is officially proof tested for shooting salute with a powder load of 20 g blackpowder by German authorities. Contrary to the original it has a funnel shaped muzzle. The piece is made from a modern steel on a CNC-grinding machine and secondary hand forged for the outer shape. .... And it is very, verry loud ...

Spiridonov: May I use one of your photos of the original on our hompeage?
