Hi Okanagan,
Welcome to the Forum.
You do not show full length pics but from what I can see from the middle bottom pic you have a Moroccan Snaphaunce musket and an Omani matchlock?? musket.
Better pics might elicit better response.
Regards Stu

There are certain questions which no doubt you will want the answer to which can not be answered on the Forum. PM me if you wish.

OK Thanks. Slight revision. You have a Moroccan Snaphaunce Musket but the other is an Afghan Jezail...not an Omani matchlock as I thought before.

Hi Okanagan.
Welcome to the Forum. I agree with Stu. Moroccan Snaphaunce long gun, and an Afghan Jazail. Look like nice pieces too.
