For anyone interested in Wheelock guns, I recommend the 1982 book- Hans Schmidt von und zu Helding, Der “Kunstreiche” Büchsenschäfter von Ferlach (um 1600-1669) by Bruno Thomas.
The following introduction to the subject of the Wheel-Lock gun is from Claude Blair’s 1962 book European & American Arms.
On Oct. 15, 2013 the James D. Julia Inc. auction co. sold a splendid group of High Art Wheelock weapons collected by Dr. Douglas Sirkin. The following Slider images from that Auction Catalog are courtesy of the Julia firm.
Following is a slider of two Wheelock Rifles attributed to “the Master of the Animal Head Scrolls” which were sold by the James D. Julia, Inc. auctions of Oct. 1 & 2, 2012 and March 11 & 12, 2013 and are courtesy of them.
The following images are from the May 19, 2022 Joh. Springer’s Erben auction, lot no. 301. It is a 12.5mm Wheelock rifle 70 cm long. It is speculated that it was an old reconstruction of a hunting wheelock in the style of the 17th Century using antique parts.
Following is a Slider of the book Firearms from the collections of the Prince of Liechtenstein by Stuart W. Pyhrr. The copy I have at my disposal is sadly in black and white with less than good detail. To see a copy in full color with great detail, go to Google Books and google the title. It is worth the effort to see the images in full color.
