I know nothing of these guns 'cept, I want one! Very nice. You seldom see guns from that area come up for sale. Love the coffee table also. What kind of wood is that, Olive?

Rajesh,

Thank you for sharing, as I do not think Coorg matchlocks have ever been posted here. The barrel looks somewhat on the short side compared to the butt, and seems to end at one of the barrels: do you think it was shortened? Close ups of the muzzle may help answer this question.

NOW THAT IS NICE!!! Looks all original, but FYI the pan cover is missing. Easy enough to make one though, and the peg is still there I see.

That is indeed a fine example, Bandook. The Coorgi are not usually thought of in relation to firearms, so this is an uncommon beauty!

Great piece. Great patina on the wood too. But why do you say that the piece is Coorgi. I don't know much about firearms but was just curious.
