Some rare firearms going back more than 200 years will be demonstrated this weekend at a museum in West Texas.

The exhibit called "Guns of the Empire: 1776-1945" will be unveiled Saturday in Brownwood at the Firearms Museum of Texas. The items are from the Marcus Ray collection of Fort Worth.

The Brownwood Bulletin reports the firearms trace certain periods in the United Kingdom, the country of Nepal and the United East India Company.

Muzzle-loaded firearms and fighting knives are part of the exhibit, which will be on display for a year at the museum.
