We just visited the Cuartel Colorado a military museum in Guadalajara near the Mercado San Juan de Dios,it has a very impressive collection of antique weapons from around the world,mostly from the private collection of Porfirio Diaz and lots of other historic Mexican military memorabilia,it's worth visiting if you're in the area.

Not that I saw,most were weapons from the Conquest to the modern day weapons used by the Mexican Military.
But it's a great collection,everything from classic Colts and Winchesters to fine Samurai swords and replica medieval catapults,they also have some vintage airplanes.
