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.

[ Many thanks to Mehul for emailing me the link. ]

    Beautiful work! I want the 31mm 1/3 scale field cannon, but I'm afraid to ask what it costs.

    Where's the accessory rail? :)

    C'mon, if Mosins and M-1 Carbines have aftermarket rail mounts...
