40mm Mountain Guns for the Jazygian Border Guards

These small guns are very mobile and can be operated by one person. As most of Jazygia's borders are steep hills, this sort of equipment is necessary for the 5th Infantry Class and 6th (Székely) Border Guards, who are looking for Mordavian incursion to the Jazygian Basin.
They are, I think, suitable for 15mm gaming as larger artillery pieces (howitzers). 
The gun barrels and pistons are made of matchstick, the receivers of balsa wood: the mantlet is cardboard, the carriage is matchstick and the wheels are again from Risk gaming pieces.
