Also included is a large collection of German schuetzen and zimmerstutzen parlor rifles with varying degrees of engravings, stock carvings, and optics and a large cache of modern handguns, sporting guns, and antique militaria. 

We are also offering a nice collection of traditional Southeast Asian, Indo-Persian, and Middle Eastern edged weapons.
