Description:
Invented for use as a fortification gun, this massive firearm has both a matchlock and a wheellock action. If one failed, the other could be used. The pentagonal barrel is not rifled (grooved) inside. It would have been used with an iron stand, or gun rest, to support the heavy barrel.
