I'm guessing the first two kanji are  (3, or possibly 五,5) followed by 十 (10).  No clue on the last one.

The barrel of Number 30 ( or 50) strikes my eye as either 1) shakudo do or some other soft metal, OR 2) buffed so that it has a rounded, 'soft' quality. It is a steel barrel?

This one looks good at first glance too. The Mon is done in silver with a brass or gold Maru. The 木 ‘Ki’ probably denotes a family like the Kinoshita or Kimura, but that should be possible to follow up.
The three characters are 三十目, Sanju-mé, a short form of 三十匁 Sanju Monmé, the largest of the hand cannons that can be fired ‘comfortably’ standing on the battlefield. Even so, you only have a window of a few seconds to fire before you have to lower it rapidly!

Peter, wax to the max?

Thanks Piers.  I was thinking that last character might have been "eye" (as in bore size).

Actually yes, Dave. 目盛リ Memori are the graduations on a measuring scale. (Easy to remember as it sounds like English ‘memory’.) So 目 Mé here contains a suggestion of seeing, but I think it is also reflecting the last syllable of Monmé 匁, lead ball weight.
