500+ Year Old Firearm, Matchlocks, Flintlocks and More - Cody Firearms Museum

National Shooting Sports Foundation

Ashley Hlebinsky, the Robert W. Woodruff Curator at the Cody Firearms Museum, invites visitors to look at the oldest firearm on display at the museum--a more than 500 year-old repeating hand cannon. Also, on display are classic examples of some of the earliest ignition systems developed, such as the matchlock, wheel-lock, flintlock and a percussion pistol.
