gun barrels

3

Early 17th Century Combination warhammer and warpick/six shot gun.  

Has six barrels concealed on it for six shots.  The head contains five barrels, their muzzles concealed by a hinged cover forming the edge of the hammer. The topmost barrel is ignited by a matchlock fitted on one side of the head, its mechanism concealed by a brass plate cut out and engraved in the form of a lion. The second barrel has a wheellock ignition system, the mechanism of which occupies most of the outer surface of the opposite side of the axe-head. There is a tubular extension to the pan of the wheellock intended to hold a length of match which would be ignited by the flash of the priming pan and then withdrawn to ignite the three remaining barrels. A sixth barrel, also hand-ignited, is concealed within the haft.

Egg flintlock pistols

Manufactured by Joseph Egg c.1820 in London, England - serial number 2476.
.57 caliber over-under twin gold-inlayed damascus steel barrels, flintlock muzzleloaders, single trigger firing each barrel in turn.

Something about pairs of handguns instantly make them immensely cooler, even though chances are they were never used, let alone dual-wielded.

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.

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.
