I picked these up recently as part of a larger deal. The 2 big 'uns have the JAIPUR, Rajasthan State Armoury marks; these guns were sold by the Indian Government in the early 1980's. The barrels are probably 18th Century, but almost impossible to date accurately.
The little one is 5ft in length and has an approx 5/8" bore.
The medium sized gun is 6ft in length and a massive 1 1/4" bore; it's very heavy! (my scales are broken......)
The long gun is 7'6" long, with a 3/4" bore.
The larger weapons are known as 'Wall Guns' as you wouldn't/couldn't hold them in the hands when firing, designed for Fort defence and are very basic weapons.
I've included a comparison photo with a .303 S.M.L.E for a bit of scale.
