  1. The new owner will like to know that, as do I. How do I mark this as sold. I do not see an "edit" function. Bugyotsuji, thank you so much for all your help. Barry
  2. Well, thanks. I didn't think that you could discern the last character toward the muzzle. Is that the maker's name?
  3. The percussion has been sold. The matchlock still available at a lower price - $700 plus shipping, obo. One of you watchers need to pick this up. The matchlock is complete. The ramrod was broken off and missing the breech end, leaving only about 18" of the end displayed. I have forged welded a piece on to it so it has a full length ramrod. The Mei is not legible closest to the breech. Here are some pics of the guns:
  4. The percussion has been sold pending funds. The matchlock still available for $800 plus shipping, obo. The matchlock is complete except for the ramrod. The ramrod is broken off and missing the breech end, leaving only about 18" of the end displayed. The Mei is not legible closest to the breech. Here are some pics of the guns: Attached Thumbnails

  7. Brian, I wanted to low the price on my items. Must I recreate the post in order update it?
  8. Sorry, I read the first post about when to use this posting service. I thought that I could post sale items. Sorry.
  9. I had posted two muskets for sale. The post disappeared!
  10. Up for sale are two tanegashimas. The first is a matchlock, the other is a percussion. The matchlock is $1300 and the percussion is $900. Make an offer if I am out of line on the price. The matchlock is complete except for the ramrod. The ramrod is broken off and missing the breech end, leaving only about 18" of the end displayed. The Mei is not legible closest to the breech. The percussion gun is shorter than the other. No ramrod. No Mei on barrel. It is fancier with the escutcheons are small flowers and there are engraved/chased brass inlays on the gun. But, the escutcheons are on the gun with no apparent purpose. When I attempted to disassemble it, I could not get the pins to knock out. I thought they might be bamboo as some have suggested. With that thought, I used a pin vise and drill to clear the pins. Once three of the four were drilled and I encountered metal (the barrel) on the most rearward escutcheon, I tried to lift out the barrel. It lifted right out. Evidently (to me), there must have been a barrel band at some point. I don't know. Here are some pics of the guns:
  11. Yes, I saw the post on the other post on Translation. Thank you very much. I am familiar with removing pins (metal) as I make American long rifles and muskets. Whether someone has tried before, I have no idea, but I used a blunt (flat tipped) round tool made from a drill bit. I got no where. I had to make two different tools as the pin positioned closest to the breech had a smaller hole in the little flower inlay. I am in the USA. I don't know much about shipping guns overseas - or should I say "running" guns... I appreciate your help. Thank you.
  12. Mr. Bugyotsuji, I looked at disassembling the percussion gun to see if I could gain some information. I read the tutorial on disassembling these guns and it said the pins may be bamboo. If this is true and in my case I think it may be as I cannot feel any metal in the holes along the forestock. So, to remove them so that the barrel can be removed, are they drilled out? The longer "wall" gun is about .46 (18 mm) caliber and the shorter is .40 (16) caliber. The wall gun has a silver band behind the muzzle. The other gun has a brass/gold braid around the barrel behind the muzzle.
  13. Bugyotsuji suggested that I start a new thread on my muskets.Here are some pictures of the guns. I know nothing of these guns. I am not a collector of them. Is there a market for them? In the US? Thank you for any help you might give. Barry
  14. Thank you very much! I saw the words you wrote, but don't now what they mean. Could you help me on that? I know nothing about these guns. I am not a collector of them. Is there a market for them? I may put up a new post on them so that I can show them off! I thought the wall gun was a reproduction as it is in such good condition. Thank you again. Barry
