James Hawkins, Texas Ranger. 1875.
German-made superimposed shots wheellock pistol
Made to fire two successive shots loaded in the same barrel. Interestingly, this wheellock mechanism does not feature full wheels but only fan-like pieces to produce sparks.
This is a whole handful of fancy!
Roy is not asking anymore.
Manufactured in Japan c.Edo period.
~.30 caliber triple barrel cluster, manually indexed revolving mechanism, brass and silver decoration.
The problem with old Japanese firearms is that this piece here could have been made in the 16th century, which would be very impressive, or up the mid-19th century, in which case it would be an obsolete novelty.
