Paired Weapons

Some examples of matching main and backup/offhand weapons. 

  1. Viking sword and hunting knife
  2. Rapier and off-hand dagger
  3. Katana and wakizashi
  4. .357 lever action carbine and .357 revolver
  5. FN SCAR and FNP-45

Paired weapons, in addition to sharing commonalities that increase usability for both weapons, look really darn cool.

The FN Model 1949 or FN-49

These shots were shared with us by a loyal FN fan who recently had his FN-49 restored by Arizona Response Systems, who specialize in restoration work for vintage or antique firearms.

The FN Model 1949, chambered in 7.92x57 mm, was designed by Dieudonné Saive and produced by FN Herstal between 1948 and 1961.

This particular rifle was manufactured for the Egyptian government.

The axes (known as sparth axes) and sword in the middle are replicas of Gallowglas weapons, Gaelic-Nordic mercenaries that primarily fought for Irish kings in the medieval and renaissance periods.

The sparth axe evolved from the Danish long axe used by their Viking forebears.

Double headed axes were not known to be used by any Europeans (Cretan double axes were ceremonial and made out of thin, sheet gold).
