In the book titled 'Konigsberg, a German East African Trader' by Kevin Patience, in Chapter 11 ‘Aftermath’ pages 158/9 it is noted what happened to some of the guns and photos are included.
The following two guns don't appear to have been mentioned by you, so may be of interest:
- A gun recovered at Kahe with a split barrel was displayed outside Government House in Dar es Salam (photo included in the book) for about a decade before it was removed and placed into storage in August 1934 – likely to have been scrapped.
- In the 1970’s there was a story of a game warden having found a gun in a river bed in one of Tanzania’s Park, but due to its remote locate the gun was left where it was.
I'm no expert on the subject, however I did find the book a most interesting read. If you are interested I may still have Kevin's email address as I did have an email exchange with him around the time I purchased the book.
