This non firing Long Tanegashima Gun is a highly decorated Japanese matchlock replica from the mid 1500's. Often employed by the Samurai class and their foot soldiers, they marked an important advancement in warfare and were instrumental in changing how tactics during war played out.
This non firing replica Tanegashima Matchlock Short Gun has a hand stained solid wood stock with a 6 sided barrel. The intricate matchlock mechanism moves and the metal parts are cast alloy with a steel or brass finish.
I have bought two off these and for the price they are fine. The lock needs inlaying from scratch Barrel bed usually needs some work but if you have the skills this is a good deal Please NOTE wood while hard is NOT walnut however for a Nepal gun is authentic.
