Taken a while but have at last enlarged that mark inside the lock. Looks to me as if it is C?R perhaps.
Does anyone recognise this mark?

Hi Ken,
The leather reminds me more of Africa somewhere rather than European East. Stud work is quite common on North African guns and it would make sense to have some way of carrying over the...

Hi Ken,
Interesting old piece. A clue to origin could be the type of bird the feathers came from. If you have a knowledgeable ornotholigist nearby he could be well worth a visit.

Hi Jim,
Once again thanks for a most useful and informative post. Seems to me that the hilt style varies by region which should make origin easy, but of course it does not. Just gives a guide to...

Hi Jim,
I guess the door is still open in terms of the origins of my Tulwar. So it could be either North or South India depending on your particular view. Anyway lets say at least it is Western...

I agree with Teodor. A nice piece showing (IMHO) genuine age wear particularly to the wooden handle.

So the Brits dumped guns as well!! That just might explain why today there are IMHO significantly fewer Coorg muskets available for sale or in auctions in comparison to the number of Toradors...

Thanks Nihl this is what I was hoping to find out. From the comments in Tirri's book it would appear that different hilt styles are also called by different names. Any idea on this one?

TULWAR for Comment and ID

Can anyone please ID the origins of this Tulwar. The 32" curved blade (very sharp) appears of good quality and has no marks of any sort visible.
The hilt is what interests me in that it appears to...

As an opener describing the features of Khanda swords is a page from Tirri's book ISLAMIC WEAPONS.

I agree with the North African atribution, but not sure about the duck hunting. I would perhaps suggest ground game if it is indeed meant as a sporting gun, rather than for combat.

Hi Eftihis,
Yes I totally agree. Your gun could well be the twin to the one I have. What is you opinion as to origin of the one you show?

Middle Eastern/North African Musket

Just picked this up in a local auction. Unusual in that it has a European style Flintlock rather than the typical Miquelet lock. IMHO the lock is the original as the stock mortice fits it correctly,...
