and here are some close shot pictures from the musket, i think one of you asked for it. If there are specific areas on the musket where you want pictures from please ask, but do keep in mind that some terms may be alien to me regarding gun knowledge barrel screws upside

can you make out by the screws and nails if it was made in the 19th century or even mid 20th century?

see the last post of page 1 for pictures of my collection. And i have a replica Ottoman WW1 uniform with belt, boots, breadbag and all that stuff.

Looks good.

I think you need something to shoot now. Maybe a cap and ball revolver?

The Portuguese Mauser-Vergueiro is an interesting rifle.
It is a native design by Sr Vergueiro with Mannlicher type action, split bridge and forward bolt handle behind a separate bolt head over a Mauser type staggered magazine. But made by DWM alongside real Mausers.
The 6.5x58 cartridge is also unique to Portugal.

One wonders why they didn't just buy '98 Mausers... or '03 Steyr Mannlicher-Schoenauers.
Not Invented Here syndrome at work, I suppose.
