Tanegashima Teppo (Rifle)

The Japanese matchlock was introduced to Japan by the Portuguese during the Sengoku period (warring state period).  Originally called teppó, it was later known by the name Tanegashima, named after the island Tanegashima who was governed by 16 year old Tanegashima Tokitaka (1528–1579).

 

Our Tanegashima teppó (rifle) are handmade in Japan using wood for the dai (stock), brass for the jiita (plating) and zinc alloy for the tsutsu (barrel)

It is crafted to look and feel like a real Tanegashima matchlock and to meet import laws for most countries, which is why it is a non-functional replica.

Although the powder box can be open, the trigger can be pulled and the hammer will drop, it cannot be made to fire so will be shipped as a movie prop.

A beautiful antique replica of the finest quality and a perfect addition to any Samurai Warrior's Armoury!
