Some interesting pieces for a museum. I wonder if any of the hand held harpoons guns have any modern application?

unknown 14x18R propelling charge originally for a french grenade launcher but then used for a harpoon gun with a heavy price https://www.naturabuy.fr/rarissime-boite-cartouche-lance-harpon--item-1191561.html










Municion.org know it





was not easy to find anything about it, only one website showing the harpoon gun Meteor








https://www.harpon34.net/fusils-suite-3-speargun-3-fuciles-3/
some interesting old pictures with harpoon guns

like the Kongsberg gun made from an old blackpowder rifle, here the Model 1874 Gras carbine. like the greener gun only for small sea mammals like dolphins and sharks + other bigger fish

some interesting and rare pics
https://www.harpon34.net/fusils-suite-3-speargun-3-fuciles-3/

this is the second pic I ever see with the original greener gun



and this looks like the Husqvarna harpoon gun





probably for the Foyn canon



whaling gun by Devisme/Paris
unusual as possible, the barrel have a slit and the grenade bullet have a wing that get a spin by the slit in the barrel
the wing will be connected with a rope



















































whaling gun by Charles Osborne&Co

the kongsberg gun puzzled me last time for making its way to australia. the owner zane grey was an avid fisherman and many times in australia and new zealand so it would be possible he had bought it there

1935

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zane_Grey

but was the jarman realy available then? I had to look for it agains and yes its the model 28 was in production from 1928 to 48 http://www.kvf.no/vaapen.php?type=Fangst&weaponid=FANG0001
wonder which ways the international gun trade was going then.

a very unique harpoon muzzle loader - swivel gun

Rare 19th century Percussion whaling harpoon gun with original pivot bracket. From famous firearms maker Holland &... Sold for US$2,000

https://www.liveauctioneers.com/en-gb/item/70128813_rare-holland-and-holland-harpoon-gun

Pierce Type Whaling Shoulder Harpoon Gun--SOLD
A Pierce all brass whaling gun with .875" bore 19.5" round barrel. Unmarked except the numeral 1 has been stamped on several components. This harpoon gun was made by Frank Brown for his uncle, Ebenezer Pierce of New Bedford, Massachusetts around 1882. The lever on the right side of the action cocks the internal hammer. A bomb lance would then be loaded and fired into the whale. Rumored that the recoil was so severe, many whaler's using this gun would end up with broken clavicles. Approximate weight 25 pounds.

By the way; in Finnish lanquage word "leski" means same as english word "widow". Surname "Leskinen" is quite cimmon here in Finland.

Whaling Gun model 1928 Jarmann, Complete Set, 10,15 mm Jarmann

In Norway infantry rifles type Jarmann have been elaborately altered for whaling to harpoon and line throwing devices. 50 cm heavy rifled barrel with original calibre, shortened stock, sturdy buttplate of lead (to reduce recoil by the weight of the gun) covered with rubber, in the sturdy original wooden box with plenty of accessories: various harpoons, line drum of brass holding a rope and an originally packed spare rope, signal buoy for line throwing to a vessel, cleaning kit, etc. This unique and rare gun has never been offered on the market in such completeness. No proof, condition III..
