Longest produced firearm

Time to pick some brains...

What would be the longest produced firearm of any given design? Iíll break it down into a couple parts:

Longest serving rifle, pistol and shotgun used continuously by a major military without massive design changes?

Longest produced commercial rifle pistol and shotgun continuously available in mostly its original form?

I think Marlin's marketing department used to claim that distinction for their Model 39.

Not just the Germans. Everybody. The Israelis were contracting new 98 Mausers into the 60s. But that's really only 60 plus years.

Look at the AR 15. It's been in continuous production nearly that long.

Geeze, hand me down my Geritol...

Well, by that count the Enfield action was in use prior to WWI through the Ishapores in the 60s as well. I guess the first Mauser would've been the 71? Still older.

The AK is pretty damn old too

Commercially I know you can commonly buy many varients of flintlock rifles dating back to the 1700s. I'd bet there is a company making matchlocks too
