I'm guessing the first two kanji are 三 (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?

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).
