What ever it is , it is rigged for remote firing, a string tied to the trigger.

I thought I posted this before somewhere but can't find it anymore. The DWJ had an article clearly identifying these guns as part of model ships. These were typically of German battle ships, about 3-4 m (10-14 ft) long, with a guy inside that steered them in mock battles. The string trigger allowed for realistic powder puffs from the turret barrels when firing black powder blanks.
I used to love being able to hit hard at 1000 yards. As I get older I find hitting a mini ram at 200 yards with the 22 oddly more satisfying.
