North double-barreled percussion pistol

Manufactured by Simeon North in Middletown, Connecticut c.1820′s for the civilian market.
.75/19mm caliber cap and ball, twin 20cm long smoothbore barrels, swivel ramming rod.

Simeon North is one of the contender for the invention of the milling machine, due to being the first recipient of a military contract mentioning part interchangeability. It was indeed during the early 19th century only that firearm manufacture truly started to industrialize itself, with the most direct result being that parts from a single musket for example would fit any other of the same model thanks to new precision tooling replacing hand-filing.

Lefaucheux revolver

Manufactured by J.S. Whyte c.1860′s - serial number 132275.
7mm pinfire twenty-round cylinder, side loading gate with pivoting manual ejector rod, twin-headed hammer firing a single round alternatively from each of the cylinder’s two layers.

Note the folding trigger that gracefully stops this revolver from being too bulky, thank gosh for that.

Forsyth lock pistol

Manufactured by Forsyth & Co. In London, United Kingdom c.1807~1810′s - serial numbers are overrated anyway.
.49 caliber twin smoothbore barrels, scent-bottle percussion lock, swivel ramrod and gold inlays.

A very rare type of lock, Forsyth’s design worked a bit like a rotating pez dispenser filled with mercury fulminate priming pellets.

Bacon Patent No55 shotgun

Manufactured in England c.1870 - no serial number.
16 gauge centerfire, side by side double barreled bolt action - with two independent bolts, ejection port in front of the trigger guard for spent shells.

You don’t often see actions like that on side by side shotguns.

Nock pepperbox musket

Manufactured by Henry Nock’s company in London c.~1800 - no serial number.
.44 ball, smoothbore manually indexed six-barrel cluster, self-priming flintlock.

A considerable upgrade on his 1779 seven-barreled volley gun, Nocks uses the revolving technology of American gunsmith Artemus Wheeler and adds to it a self-priming mechanism of his own design, which would later be the basis of Elisha Collier’s famous designs. This firearm would allow its user to fire a shot, lock the barrel cluster into its next position, cock the hammer, lower the frizzen and take another shot, up to six times in a row. It was a considerably faster rate of fire than any musket at the time.
