I've had this hanging around in my closet and other places occasionally for 40 or more years and have just now gotten around to really looking at it. It did not fit into my collection type and it was missing parts so I just stored it. I will be happy to answer any questions or if needed will send more pics. Thanks
A scarce Japanese Tanegashima Matchlock Musket Parts. This was a more refined matchlock musket that utilized a lock and trigger mechanism instead of the more primitive hand-held match. Use of this type of firearm in Japan dates to the mid-16th Century, when the Portuguese brought this 15th Century European concept to the shores of the Japanese Island of Tanegashima, for which the musket is named. With just a few examples Japanese swordsmiths were able to duplicate and produce their own on a large scale, forever changing how wars would be fought in Japan by the end of the 16th Century. They proved decisive in settling the internal wars, so that Japan lived in relative peace and isolation for the next 250 years. The Tanegashima continued to be produced and used until about the end of the Edo Period, when Commodore Perry established contact in the mid-19th Century. Conflict again rose to the surface but was decided by modern weapons of the period.

I was asked by someone to measure the musket and it is 51 inches over all and the barrel is 39 inches.
Also an interesting feature is there is no channeling or inletting for a trigger mechanism on the stock but you can see where there was a band around the stock at that area which I presume had some kind of trigger mechanism.

I assume the four little square holes on the bottom of the stock below where the lock would go is where some kind of trigger mechanism attached to the musket stock somehow.

I accidentally misrepresented the weight of the package for calculated shipping but can't change it at this time but will happily refund the excess shipping paid by the buyer with no problem. I apologize for the error.
