Interesting set.

The last one (and the animated gif) is technically an arquebus (hook-gun) rather than a musket, as the latter was a smaller weapon fired without a support. I've no idea what the middle one is.

Thanks for the comments, everyone.

If I remember correctly, they described that one as a "Mule" - an earlier, simpler gun.

Brilliant photos Hatter, often been to the Tudor re-enactments at Kentwell Hall, Suffolk.

Thanks, Denis.

I believe the Suffolk Free Company perform at Kentwell Hall too.  (The vice-chairman of Hitchin Camera Club is one of the re-enacters and he's mentioned Kentwell Hall to me in the past.)
