Default Double and triple shot wheel-locks, ca. 1570-80, in the Hermitage St. Petersburg

The art of 16th century gunmakers!

All scanned from Tarassuk's book.

Another view of the triple lock gun, the butt trap cover missing, the stock profusely inlaid with engraved bone or staghorn plaques (not ivory!).

Plus a fine detached double wheel-lock for a gun on the superimposed load system, made in Augsburg, ca. 1580.

Not at the Hermitage but in a Bavarian collection.
