Thanks for the pictures, that's some really cool/obscure stuff.
(If you're uploading the pictures anyway, could you perhaps share the link to the bladed stuff? Thanks.)

The other ones looked like that French pin-fire pistol.

Thanks all for your comments and info.

I will go back to the museum to take more pictures. Especially of the medieval weapons. I can gladly share the link to those pics.

Multi barreled pistols: I really like the double barrel setup.



Can you tell me how this one cycles?:



Nice collection here:

Some pocket pistols:





This one is German. Can you tell me who the manufacturer is? Can't read what it says on the barrel.



And I forgot to add this S&W revolver in my previous post. Sorry about that:
Lovely engravings on it.

Great PICS! I believe many of those weapons have pages here on IMFDB. Now I just have to check to see how many there are. But you're right. The Turkish museum has piss poor 'descriptions' of the various weapons. Heck we probably provide more detailed information on most of those weapons (i.e. the IMFDB membership). Great pics! Keep them coming!

Thank you.

Some rifles: Note the barrel of the one to the right:


Same rifles:




This one is made by Ottomans in the 15th or early 16th Century. It is quite impressive:

The creativity of old guns just blows me away.
Oh awful puns.

I have to go back to the museum to take pics o medieval weapons and early firearms. Hopefully next week.

Here's something I'd like for Christmas.



Some gunsmith's tools:

And Mana is TWICE as strong as Red Bull.
If I recall rightly, it's from Turkey or that part of the world, so who knows what they might have been on. It's based on the long barreled Musket version of the '66... Would be in 44 rimfire and be blackpowder cartridge. Now back a few years, I had a Ballard Sporting rifle (single shot/manual extraction) from 1864, it had a cracked breach block so I had one done up in 44/40, so I could reload and use it. I could fire 18 aimed shots a minute with it and sustain that for 8-10 minutes with ease. Now, after the first 2-3 the forearm wood stock got so hot, I could not hold it without good leather gloves. By the 8-10 minute mark, I couldn't hold it even with the gloves... Now, I'm not sure how fast you could fire a king improved Henry. I know I could outshoot the Henry Rifles, but their loading sucks. I could stay ahead of the Spencer carbine guy with a Blakely box for reloading...

So, I'm guessing you could shoot this fast enough with 44rf ammo to heat it up good. Remember the old guns don't disperse heat nearly as well as new ones go. Heat was just starting to be an issue...
