    Just fascinating but Horribly grisly artifacts, for sure. I've never been one to be shy about such things, but these 2 gun barrels are amongst the most ghastly relics I've ever yet seen. The thought of the hundreds upon hundreds of lives that they took are enough to chill the blood. So Many young boys never came home from France because of these horrific but efficient weapons. If gathered in one place, these 2000 men could have populated a small city just by themselves. How many future generations never were, because of these guns. It numbs the mind to think of their history.

    That is just increadible,what a discovery,The person who had them did not even know what he had intil a nother collector told him.
    What a save.If you ever sell them contact me.
    You need to document all your info about them ,You do not want them to get lost again if something was to happen to you.
