Prof. Osvaldo Gatto’s blackpowder guns

    Prof. Osvaldo Gatto is a Argentinian gun maker who has quite a following around the world. He makes reproductions of a variety of weapons ranging from swords to blackpowder cannons and everything in between.

    I love the clean lines on the reproduction of a German wheel lock pistol from the 1630s. It sells for $1700 (USD)

    His Enfield Pistol reproduction sells for $600.

    Lots more photos of the guns he makes over at his website.
