Fire arms and accessories

With around 13,400 items, the collection of small arms and accessories is the most comprehensive in the armoury. It includes 3,867 guns and 4,259 pistols, all of which have a variety of lock systems. In addition, there are various types of accessories:

  • containers for powder and gunpowder
  • cartridge boxes
  • holsters
  • clamps
  • bullet moulds
  • musket forks
  • bayonets


Most of the small arms date back to the 16th, 17th and 18th centuries and were intended for use in military operations. The weapons were mainly acquired in Augsburg, Nürnberg, Suhl, Wiener Neustadt, Ferlach and from workshops in Styria.


A smaller part of the small arms collection was used for hunting as well as sport, and was once owned by members of the aristocracy.
