Sakai Teppo (Matchlock) Long Gun


Recommended Posts

An excellent condition signed Sakai long gun. No corrosion on the flash pan and the bore looks excellent. Lock mechanism and trigger assembly work perfectly, with no issues.

Price drop $2000 or best reasonable offer.

I 100% feel that this teppo is ready to fire. Lock mechanism is 100% functionable and bore is in good shape. Flash pan is not rusted, pitted, or corroded. A .460" ball with a .010-.015" patch and  35-40 grains of powder would bring this to life. I will also include match material for display/use.
