Thanks Feltwad.  Fascinating and a credit to you.
Do you know the origin of the last one?   Spanish, early Italian?  Do you think it was originally percussion?   The rear sight and Miquelet charactetistics seem to indicate something much earlier.
The gun is Spanish  with the Madrid cross name is faint , Although this type of miqulet was used from the flintlock period the  gun was built has percussion  not a conversion , has for the rear sight i have come across many smootbores of this type with a sight.
Very nice work Gordon!

Kind regards
